Eduardo Figueroa and Oscar Ohlsen: Chilean baroque guitar duo.


Eduardo Figueroa and Oscar Ohlsen have been working together as a duo since 1994 giving concerts in the most important halls and universities in Chile with classical and baroque guitars, lutes and other instruments of the same family. Since 2006 the duo have been working with only Latin-American baroque repertoire, mostly Chilean and Peruvian sources, the main contribution to which has been the reconstruction and interpretation of the Chilean manuscript "Cifras Selectas de Guitarra" (1722) by Santiago de Murcia.

The duo performed the world premiere of this musical source in Santiago de Chile during 2006, the European premiere in London in 2007 and made the first world recording of the manuscript the same year, winning the Chilean Art Press (APES) prize in 2008 for their contribution to the national culture.
