Romantic Viennese Guitars



A magic moment of music. Two fine musicians – Christian Fergo and Raoul Morat – played Schubert on two guitars.
— Elisabeth Leonskaja, pianist

One of the most exceptional classical guitar duos to emerge in recent years.

Ever since their debut, Duo Morat-Fergo has made a name through their ground breaking arrangements and interpretations of 19th Century piano music. Musical intimacy and precision are some of the duo's hallmarks, defined by their ability to make the sound of their guitars melt together and appear as one instrument.

Christian Fergo and Raoul Morat met while studying with Echo prize winner Frank Bungarten. A mutual love for Schubert's music sparked the beginning of the duo. One of their goals is to use the extraordinary abilities of the romantic Viennese guitars in their arrangements of the piano music of among others Mozart, Schubert and Chopin.

'The Schubert-Arrangements by this excellent guitar duo, Morat-Fergo, are a true discovery: rarely was the intimacy and charm of this music more beautifully illuminated.'
