Christina Travlopoulou and Go Nagano came together as a guitar duo whilst studying at The Juilliard School, their bond arising from a deep mutual interest in early music masterworks that were not originally composed for the guitar.@Thus, they began making their own transcriptions of solo and concertante works from the Renaissance and the Baroque Era, Christina on a six-string guitar and Go on an eleven-string guitar allowing for a wider range and depth which this unique repertoire demands. They have been highly acclaimed by audiences and critics alike in major concsrt halls around the world including Carnegie Hall and Alice Tully Hall in the United States, Tokyofs Casals Hall and Yamaha Hall and Brazilfs SESC Hall.  The duo has been featured at the 1st Festival International de Violao do Brazil, ArtLine Japan Music Series, Augustine New York Guitar Series and 2005-2006 Deutschland in Japan. Their first CD, "...chopin works", is yet more proof of the duofs commitment to expanding their innovative repertoire, further exploring previous periods and tapping evermore into their musical treasure-troves.
