Visiting New Zealand for the first time is the duo of Swedish guitarist Johannes Möller with his Argentinian partner Laura Fraticelli. They have been described as “The unique fusion of Swedish perfection and Argentinian passion”. They have performed to acclaim throughout Europe, North and South America as well as on radio and TV.

In 2014 released their first CD on the Naxos label featuring the music of early 19th Century composer Johann Kaspar Mertz. Here is what one of the critics had to say: "The playing of Johannes Möller and Laura Fraticelli is exquisite throughout. This is one of the loveliest albums I've heard in 2014, in any genre.” (American Record Guide) .

Johannes Möller has captivated audiences around the world with his charismatic performances. In 2010 he was awarded first prize in the Guitar Foundation of America Concert Artist Competition, considered to be the most prestigious guitar competition in the world. In 2017 he will take up the position of Head of Guitar Studies at the Amsterdam Conservatory.

Laura Fraticelli studied in Argentina before moving to Europe to study in London and the Netherlands. She has been praised for her beautiful tone and passionate interpretations. As well as the music of Mertz, their programme will include Argentinian tangos and their own original compositions, including Johannes’ delightful Chinese Impressions, inspired by his travels through China.

- Johann Caspar Mertz: Three Duos
- Three Argentinian Tangos
- Johannes Möller: Five Chinese Impressions
