Two masters of guitar – one from the classical music world and one from jazz – come together for an adventurous evening of solo sets and duets. From Bach and Villa-Lobos to American standards and Frisell's original works, these two virtuosos bring their distinctive voices to a fascinating variety of music.

Eliot Fisk has transformed the repertoire of the classical guitar through his ground breaking transcriptions — including works by Bach, Scarlatti, Haydn, Mozart, Paganini and Albeniz — through countless works dedicated to him by composers as varied as Luciano Berio, Leonardo Balada, Robert Beaser, Nicholas Maw, George Rochberg and Kurt Schwertsik, and through his countless creative collaborations with other musicians in classical, flamenco, jazz and world music styles.

Grammy Award winner and three-time Grammy nominee, including a 2009 nomination for Best Jazz Instrumental Album, Bill Frisell is a 10-time Best Guitarist winner in the Downbeat Critics Poll (including 2011) and three-time Downbeat Readers Poll winner for Best Guitarist.
