Tropicale

Tropicale emerges from our mutual fascination with music from Latin America and Italy. Our love of all things Italian is renewed every summer during our chamber music workshop, Suonare in Italia, where Italian music is understood to be central to any classical musician’s experience. Siamo d'accordo!

Latin American music, in all its richly varied guises, has also been a large part of our musical experiences, both through the deep well of guitar repertoire from the region and through Poco Tango, our chamber quartet of flute, guitar, double bass and percussion.

Tropicale captures many of our favorite flute and guitar duets from both cultures.

Stephen Aron

AronBerkner Duo

The AronBerkner Duo have been playing concerts together for over ten years. Their repertoire includes all the flute/guitar masterworks and features several pieces written especially for them. Their frequent appearances in Italy have led to the establishment of the annual summer chamber music festival, Suonare in Italia.

Jane Berkner

Stephen Aron

Described by the New York Times as "cultivated and musical", Stephen Aron has established himself at the center of the American classical guitar scene. Recent activity has taken him across North America and Europe, including appearances in New York City, Canada, France, Denmark and Italy and Germany. An active recording artist, he has released eight cd’s, to critical acclaim. Notably, the music Aron has recorded is almost entirely of his own creation, either by arrangement or composition, and includes the complete mazurkas of Chopin, volumes of music of Mendelssohn and Schumann, and new works by both contemporary composers and "lost" works, such as the complete guitar compositions of Walter Burle Marx. Most recently, Aron has turned his attention to composing; his newest solo recording features his own original works. Aron’s arrangements and compositions can be found in print in editions by Tuscany/Theodore Presser, Mel Bay and Clear Note Publications.

In addition to his work with the AronBerkner Duo, he performs regularly with JoNell Aron (soprano), the Gabrieli Ensemble (strings) and Poco Tango. Stephen Aron is Professor of Music and Chairman of Guitar Studies at the University of Akron and Teacher of Classical Guitar and founder of the classical guitar studies program at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music.
