Flauguissimo Duo return to St James’s Piccadilly with a programme entitled ‘Forgotten Stories’ – a wondrous tale of human longings and musical masterpieces hidden in the private salons. The concert will feature music by Schubert, Giuliani and Clara Schumann.

Flauguissimo Duo was founded by flautist Yu-Wei Hu and guitarist Johan Löfving in 2008. They have performed at many prestigious venues including Kings Place, Cadogan Hall and St John's Smith Square in London, Sage Gateshead in Newcastle and St George’s Bristol. Recently Flauguissimo was invited to perform in the Stratford-on-Avon Festival, King's Lynn Festival and London Guitar Festival; abroad their performance highlights include Utrecht Early Music Festival Fringe in the Netherlands, Swedish Guitar and Lute Festival and the Bach Hall in Taiwan. Passionate about contemporary music, Flauguissimo Duo performed and led composer’s workshop at Bristol University. Selected for Brighton Early Music Festival Live and International Guitar Foundation Young Artist Platform 2015, Concordia Young Artists and Live Music Now, Flauguissimo Duo’s performances have been highly appreciated by both audience and music critics.

Besides Flauguissimo Duo, Yu-Wei and Johan have won many prizes in prominent competitions, including International Early Music Competition in Middelburg/The Netherlands 2011, Uppsala International Guitar Competition 2011 and London International Guitar Competition 2012. They have performed at MuTh-Konzertsaal der Wiener Sängerknaben, Wigmore Hall, Royal Festival Hall, Royal Albert Hall, Radio France Festival Montpellier, Palace of Versailles, BBC Proms Cadogan Hall, Bachwoche Festival Vienna, Carinthischer Sommer Festival Austria, Opera Barga Festival Italy, London Handel Festival and London Festival of Baroque Music. Their performances have been broadcast on BBC Radio 3 and Radio 4, Radio France, Austrian Radio Ö1 and Swedish Radio P2.

Yu-Wei and Johan specializes in a historically-informed, lively and exciting interpretation of music. Their aim is to present a variety of music from the 18th and 19th centuries, as the intimate setting of flute and guitar flourished in the salon culture throughout Europe at the time.
