The Avalokite Duo (harp and percussion) was created out of the enthusiasm of two colleagues and teachers, Patrizia Boniolo and Guido Facchin, who wished to acquaint the public with the concert harp and the heterogeneous world of percussion instruments in a chamber context, driven by the aim to promulgate contemporary music and, also, highlight popular music through the use of typical folk instruments, so as to merge, in music, the styles and cultures of different peoples.
The Duo endeavoured to draw the attention and interest of composers, prompting them to enlarge their repertoire by commissioning works to be performed in concert. Among the composers who accepted the challenge are Cosimo Colazzo, Mariabianca Furgeri, Paolo Furlani, Fabio Mengozzi, Mario Pagotto, Riccardo Riccardi, Paola Samoggia, Claudio Scannavini, Elda Schiesari, Lorenzo Signorini and Marco Zuccante.
The repertoire of the Avalokite Duo, which includes the transcription and adaptation of important classical and popular pieces, is unique and fascinating due to the peculiar and ever-changing sounds of the countless percussion instruments used, and of the characteristic colour effects provided by the harp; it includes works composed by Guido Facchin himself, by Giorgio Mainerio, Federico Garcia Lorca, Lou Harrison, Bernard Andrès, John Luther Adams, Tan Dun and Avedis Nazarian. The Avalokite Duo complements their concert activity with teaching and research.
