Duo D'Arvid

The guitarists David Röhler and Arvid Graeber met for the first time in 2006 at the Rotenburg Guitar Festival (Niedersachsen, Germany), only to lose sight of each other for four years due to the fact that they were studying in different places (Hannover/Bremen).

The premiere of “Moduli animati”, written by Klaus-Peter Schneegass, brought them together again in 2011. Their collaboration was characterized by success and harmony, so they decided not only to collaborate for a few projects, but to work together as a permanent duo called “Duo D'Arvid”. In the same year they had their debut with Nordwestradio (Radio Bremen/NDR – public service radio station). Since that time the duo has been developing its repertoire through all eras and styles and inspires their audience in Germany and abroad with its expressive and lyrical way of playing. In 2014 the duo received a scholarship from the Schleswig Holstein Musikfestival for a masterclass with Pepe Romero.

In addition to their concerts both musicians are teaching at music schools as well as at private classes, passing their knowledge and experience to their pupils.
