Guitarists Nico Buri and Tom Dale met at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester in September 2019 where they are currently studying with world-renowned guitarist, Craig Ogden. Both skilled improvisers, they initially played together in a flamenco fusion project at the RNCM Opera Theatre in February, 2020. This project also gave them an opportunity to work with successful South African cellist, Abel Selacoe.
From this early work in a predominantly improvisatory setting, Nico and Tom began to explore the duo repertoire for classical guitar with an early emphasis on Latin American compositions, notably those of Astor Piazzolla and Maximo Diego Pujol. Lockdown meant that their first public performance couldn’t take place until June 2021 at RNCM’s Carol Nash Recital Room but since then they have gained attention and acclaim for performances both within and outside the RNCM.
Now expanding their repertoire to cover a broad period and style of guitar music, Nico and Tom are preparing for a busy year of concerts alongside their ongoing undergraduate studies.
Nico Buri is a 20 year old guitarist from Zurich, Switzerland. He began playing the classical guitar at the age of 9 and his fascination for the instrument and its endless possibilities has grown ever since. He is the only RNCM guitarist to have reached the finals of the RNCM Gold Medal Competition in his second undergraduate year. He has also been prize-winner at competitions in Italy, Germany and Switzerland and has performed in masterclasses for world-class performers including Marcin Dylla, Zoran Dukic, Marco Tamayo and Aniello Desiderio. Prior to coming to the UK, Nico performed with the successful Swiss Youth Guitar Ensemble for over six years, along with other ensembles and chamber groups touring through Germany, Spain, Poland and the Netherlands. Nico plays a 2018 Kirschner Double-Top guitar.
Born in Lincolnshire, Tom Dale is a diverse and multi-skilled musician who began studying the guitar at the age of 8. He is currently in his 3rd year at the Royal Northern College of Music. Tom won all the music awards at his grammar school, received a distinction for his Grade 8 ABRSM exam and went on to achieve the ARSM Diploma in 2018. Tom has performed in a wide range of musical settings from leading an indie rock band to performing gypsy jazz, Afrobeat, in musical theatre and on acoustic guitar. On classical guitar he is an experienced solo performer but has also played regularly in ensembles, duos and in mixed chamber groupings and has achieved first class results in his RNCM recitals to date. Tom plays a 2020 Sam McClaren Spruce Concert Classical guitar.
