Written by rts007

Gudrun J. Olafdottir and F. Javier Jáuregui are performing as “Dúo Atlántica”. Described by the Sunday Times as “a singer of high intelligence, feisty character and captivating vocal colour”, mezzo-soprano Gudrun has performed at venues such as Madrid’s Teatro Real, the St. Petersburg Philharmonia’s Glinka Hall, the Buenos Aires Coliseo and the Royal Festival Hall in London. Holding a M.D. of Music in Performance from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, F. Javier is a classical guitarist who performs, writes and teaches music. He has played both as a solo performer and with different chamber combinations in venues such as the St. Petersburg Philharmonic Society Chamber (Glinka) Hall, St Martin-in-the-Fields, the Linbury Studio Theatre Royal Opera House, Covent Garden), St. James’s Palace (London), and the Auditorio Nacional de Música (Madrid).
