About Duo Deconet

The duo of classical musicians met in 2008 when they participated in concerts of contemporary Latin American Chamber Music. A constant and shared interest to promote their national musical heritage has led them to include some of the most important Latin American composers in their classical repertoire.

Duo Deconet are considered the chamber musician pioneers of the 21st century for Latin American music in Australia. Their aim is to promote the music of a new generation of established living Latin American composers, regularly offering premieres in the Asia-Pacific region. The contemporary and eclectic repertoire performed by Duo Deconet, incorporates the vast and amazing 20th and 21st century repertoire from: Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Chile, Ecuador, Mexico, Mongolia, Panama, Peru, Spain, Uruguay and Venezuela.

Colomer, Paul Dessene, Leonardo Coral, Carlos Salomón, Alejandro Corona, Eduardo Gamboa, Luis C. Figueroa, Guido López, Jorge Grundman, Alexis Aranda and Manuel Ruiz del Corral.

The success that Duo Deconet, has achieved over the last eight years, has substantially increased, therefore the duo has spent time researching Australian music containing some elements of Latin-American music. The new Ibero American and Australian repertoire, commissioned works, collaborations and concerts have led them to expand the dimension of their projects.

Duo Deconet has invested time in strengthening its governance as an Incorporated not for profit association, within the small performing arts sector; with the aim to continue ongoing collaborations, creating original activities with quality, that will represent value for the Australian and Latin-American business sectors here and abroad.
