  • Guitar duo Hannover

    Virtuoso acoustic guitar music for every occasion

    Ralf Sommerfeld and Gunnar Hofmann present instrumental guitar music of the extra class in their duo.

    Through their various musical influences they present music ranging from jazz, Latin, pop, flamenco to classical music. The repertoire of this extraordinary guitar duo includes original compositions as well as interpretations of well-known melodies.

    For high-quality instrumental guitar music, whether for concerts, company events, bar jazz, private parties or weddings, these two guitarists are guaranteed the right choice for you.

    The guitar duo Hannover was founded in 2012.
    Already after one session it was clear:
    The jazzy, virtuoso and incredibly musical guitar style of Gunnar Hofmann harmonizes perfectly with the technically extraordinary flamenco guitar style of Ralf Sommerfeld. The two guitarists convince live by a diverse, stylistically varied program which is presented with extraordinary joy of playing. Due to their top-class virtuosity they effortlessly interpret titles in the style of Al di Meola or Chick Corea. Joachim Schütte from Hannover is also used as a trio partner or for an alternative line-up. They have all been professional guitarists for over 30 years. This experience on and with the guitar, their love for guitar music and the fun they all have playing live, makes every concert of these remarkable guitarists a special experience.
