As the Waller and Maxwell Guitar Duo, Bienen School faculty guitarist Anne Waller and DePaul University faculty guitarist Mark Maxwell have appeared at the Phillips Collection in Washington, DC; Guitar Foundation of America festivals; Buffalo, New York’s Rantucci Festival; and Dame Myra Hess Memorial Concerts in Chicago. They have performed extensively in Italy, where they were praised for “their absolutely sublime touch” (La Sicilia) and for “strong playing, but at the same time delicate and clean” (Libertà). Chicago Symphony Orchestra assistant principal flutist Richard Graef and Charles Pikler, longtime CSO principal viola, join the duo for an evening of exquisite chamber music.
