Vero Duo combines the sonority of the harp and warm tones of the classical guitar. The duo was created in 2013 by Gretchen Chell Cover, harp and Miguel Bonachea, guitar. In 2017 Vero Duo released the harp and guitar album Sketchbook of a Journey.
SKETCHBOOK OF A JOURNEY
GRETCHEN CHELL COVER, harp
MIGUEL BONACHEA, guitar
Sketchbook of a Journey is a world premier recording album of three original works for harp and guitar. There is a set of seven solo guitar preludes.
The harp and guitar pieces are: “Sketchbook of a Journey”, “From a Chinese Waterfall” and “Sonata for Harp and Guitar.” “Florentine Preludes” are composed for solo guitar.
The music is described as a “serene musical experience for the listener that Debussy would have loved and praised.”
The music is composed by Anthony Sidney, a classical and jazz guitarist and recipient of a Sony Lifetime Achievement Award. Music is performed by Gretchen Chell Cover, harp and Miguel Bonachea, guitar.
“This is a beautifully crafted CD. It is not only soothing and lyrical to listen to; but reminds what two highly skilled musicians can bring to the world of music. While most of the album has a subdued flow to it, there are tracks that are somewhat lively. Interestingly, whether tranquil or more invigorating, the individual sounds of the guitar and/or harp are never LOST. I feel so blessed to have this CD and HIGHLY recommend it to anyone who loves the classic sounds of a harp and/or guitar.”
