Duolisme

 
Duolisme

It was in 1991 that guitarists Frank Lamm and Peter Thissen met in the bustling corridors of the Brabants Conservatorium in The Netherlands. They were drawn to one another by a shared passion for guitar music. This meeting was the start of a magical and lengthy collaboration. A collaboration which not only they themselves but also their listeners will enjoy time and again. Talented musicians who meet their perfect musical partner at such an early age are rare. Frank and Peter were given this opportunity and they seized it with both hands. Together they embarked on a course characterized by rehearsing, learning, studying and making music. In 1995 Frank and Peter decided on a name for their subtle ensemble playing: Duolisme guitar duo is born. From that moment on Duolisme gave concerts within The Netherlands but also in other countries such as England, Belgium, Germany, Turkey, Swiss, the Dutch Antilles, Malaysia and Schotland. Duolisme has recorded four CD’s.

After fifteen years of fruitful collaboration, health problems have forced Peter Thissen to put an end to his career as a performing guitarist.

In 2006 Bert Kwakkel made two classical concert guitars type Merula with spruce top for Duolisme.
