John Duarte - Composer


Known to all as 'Jack'


Originally Music on Earth made this as a short run VHS in the late 1990s for Jack's friends, family and fans. A labour of love suggested by Jack's wife Dorothy and long-time friend and admirer Brendan McCormack. 


All contributors and music publishers were very kind in allowing this short run to be made free of charge. Budget was tight to say the least.


However, we still get enquires about this remarkable musician - without doubt Jack was one of the world's foremost experts on guitar history and performance. His reviews for 'Gramophone' were well respected and became standard reference points for students and scholars alike.


He composed many pieces for guitar that have become 20th Century 'standard repertoire' including a work for Andres Segovia. Teachers world over are particularly grateful for his student pieces and tutor books.


We are looking into funding possibilities to relaese this as a sort run DVD - copyright issues make this a very expensive thing to do. However, until this can be sorted all contirbutors have given us permission to run off on demand a DVD for anyone interested in seeing the completed fascinating biography about a remarkable man.


The documentary consists of a filmed interview with Jack at his home in London with musical performances by:-



  • Vladisav Blaha

  • Zagreb Guitar Trio

  • Evangelos and Liza Assimakopoulos

  • Jacqueline Fox

  • Arne Brattland

  • Raymond Burley
