Sérgio and Odair Assad will perform for Cleveland Classical Guitar Society on Sunday, April 30, 2017. This is the headlining concert of the International Series, marking the end of the 2016-2017 season. In more than 50 years performing together, the Assad brothers have set the standard for guitar duo performance in precision and artistry. Recognized as prolific recording artists, the brothers have won multiple Latin Grammys and one Grammy award, and have been featured on recordings with top artists, such as Yo-Yo Ma.

Brazilian-born brothers Sérgio and Odair Assad have created a new standard of guitar innovation, ingenuity and expression. Their exceptional artistry and uncanny ensemble-playing come from a family rich in Brazilian musical tradition. Their virtuosity has inspired a wide range of composers to write for them including Astor Piazzolla, Terry Riley, Nikita Koshkin, Roland Dyens, Jorge Morel, and Francisco Mignone. Sérgio Assad has added to their repertoire by composing music for the duo and for various musical partners both with symphony orchestra and in recitals. They have worked extensively with such renowned artists as Yo-Yo Ma, Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg, Gidon Kremer, and Dawn Upshaw. Odair is based in Brussels where he teaches at Ecole Supérieure des Arts, while Sérgio resides in San Francisco where he is on the faculty of the SF Conservatory.

The Assad Brothers began playing together at an early age and their international career began with a major prize at the 1979 Young Artists Competition in Bratislava. Their repertoire explores folk, jazz and various styles of Latin music. Their classical repertoire includes transcriptions of the great Baroque keyboard literature of Bach, Rameau, and Scarlatti and adaptations of works by Gershwin, Ginastera, and Debussy; thus making their touring programs a compelling blend of styles, periods and cultures. They have collaborated with such notable orchestras as the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the orchestras of São Paulo and Seattle, and the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra. The Assads have made a number of recordings on Nonesuch and GHA including Sérgio and Odair Assad Play Piazzolla and Jardim Abandonado, which both received Latin Grammys.
