Duo Agostino - Rachel ScottDuo Agostino

Rachel Scott

Rachel Scott is known for her unconventionality – in programming, choice of artists, venue choices and delivery in concerts. She believes concerts are a time of celebration – of sharing and enjoying. Rachel studied with David Pereira in Canberra and Robert Cohen in London. She has played as a soloist and chamber musician in the United Kingdom, Serbia, Albania, Finland, Hungary and Germany. Rachel also teaches for the Australian Children’s Music Foundation (ACMF) working with underprivileged children, going into schools teaching music to children who have never had this experience before. For the last 6 years, Rachel has traveled regularly to East Timor, where she was involved in training music teachers, working for Mary McKillop International. These young music teachers not only teach primary school children in Dili, but share their knowledge with other teachers all over Timor. Rachel also works closely with the Australian Chamber Orchestra and the NSW Royal Navy Band, designing interactive concerts, online lessons and workshops for primary school children in and around Sydney.

Duo Agostino: Raffaele and Janet Agostino

Raffaele and Janet have been active in the Sydney Classical Guitar scene over the last three decades, beginning with the founding of the Sydney Guitar Quartet in 1981, a group that performed extensively for a period of over 10 years and was the first ensemble of its kind in Australia. They share a strong interest in the development of the guitar as an ensemble instrument and together with colleagues Richard Charlton and Christopher Keane, have been the driving force behind the Sydney Guitar Society Summer School for more than 20 years. This partnership also created “frEternity”, a Sydney-based guitar ensemble formed to perform, record and promote the works of several Australian composers.

Together with fellow guitarist and composer Richard Charlton, they form the “Sydney Guitar Trio”, an ensemble that has performed extensively around Australia and overseas. Duo Agostino and the Sydney Guitar Trio have been regular performers at five Darwin International Guitar Festivals. In 2013, Duo Agostino were featured artists at the Dillington and World Youth Guitar Festivals in the UK and were also invited by the Australian Embassy to perform and give master classes in Hanoi, Vietnam. The Trio was featured at the January 2014 Taranaki NZ Guitar Summer School, and together with actor/narrator Rory O’Donoghue the Trio appeared at the 2014 Adelaide International Guitar Festival.

The Duo’s recent programs have included collaborations with colleagues from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, the Sydney Baroque Consort, the Thoroughbass ensemble, vocalist Nadia Piave, violinist Maria Lindsay and with cellist Rachel Scott in the popular “Bach in the Dark” concert series.

Both Raffaele and Janet have been awarded Life membership by the Classical Guitar Society, Sydney, for their significant and sustained contribution.
