Duo Transatlantique

Formed in 2002, the Duo has performed nationwide in the US as well as numerous countries in Europe and enjoys a reputation for brilliance and musicality. Called “faultless” in their “display of ensemble work” and “one of the finest displays of partnership” by English critics, the duo has recorded two CD’s and is planning their third production in 2014.

Duo Transatlantique has performed for most of the major guitar societies in the US and several major festivals in Europe as well. The French magazine, Guitare Classique writes, “Their sonority is rich and one of the most flattering we’ve ever heard,” and MusicWeb International recently said, “Their ten years together has evidently given them an intimate understanding of each other’s technique and phraseology, and together they radiate a listener-pleasing authority and enjoyment.”

Benjamin Beirs and Maud Laforest both currently live in France – Benjamin in Paris and Maud in Reims. They both attended the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore, where their duo was formed under the guidance of guitar professor Julian Gray. Just back from a major concert in Dubai, their Asheville appearance is part of a tour that also includes the Knoxville and South Bay Classical Guitar Societies. Mr. Beirs, whose father and brother live in Asheville, has been presented by the Asheville Classical Guitar Society in 2010 and has also recorded two albums in the Asheville area. Mr. Beirs recently worked with his brother Michael Hynes of Nomatic Studios on his 3rd solo CD, recorded in the Masonic Temple in July.
