The duo composed by Andrea Salvi on the flute and Angelo Magnifico on the guitar was formed in January 2008 with the aim of developing and divulgating the 19th and 20th centuries' important repertory of music for flute and guitar, as well as the repertory developed for these two instruments in contemporary times.
