The University of Wyoming Department of Music Faculty Recital Series continues with music from Duo Pragma at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 23, in the Buchanan Center for the Performing Arts recital hall. The program is free and open to the public.

According to its biography, Duo Pragma finds its purpose through musical partnership and commitment. The husband-wife duo, formed by Andrew Giordano, violin, and Nathália Kato, piano, are “committed to values of expansion and inclusivity” in their chamber music projects and through their joint teaching studio. Bringing lesser-known works to life is an important way Duo Pragma creates their own voice in the chamber music world.

Based in Colorado, Duo Pragma (Greek for enduring love) has performed for a wide range of audiences and demographics -- from Brazil to concert venues and retirement communities in the U.S. The duo also has managed to bring music to many audiences that would not normally have the opportunity to hear them perform through online concerts. During the pandemic, Duo Pragma has embraced performing online to bring audiences together from all over the world.

In addition to the standard violin-piano repertoire, Duo Pragma often performs rarely heard repertoire by both well-known and marginalized composers. Recently, the duo has finished arranging and is recording their own version of Astor Piazzolla’s “Cuatro Estaciones Porteñas.”
