Duo Lenz

Classical Guitar Magazine, UK, praises Duo Lenz for their “…exciting ensemble playing, dynamic stage presence and an eclecticism which doesn’t preclude a substantial commitment to home-grown music”. Limelight Magazine, Australia, commends the duo on their “Subtle interpretations, crisp articulation and a focus on absolute beauty of tone production”.

It is their unique stage presence and skill that has led this dynamic duo to appear in numerous recitals worldwide, performing their broad and exciting repertoire.

Ruth and Richard Lenz were both well established musicians before coming together, not only as a professional guitar duo but also as husband and wife.

Truly devoted to this musical marriage, their performance schedule has been extensive. They have been invited to play for many prestigious events and festivals. Together they have made television appearances and receive extensive radio airplay.


Duo Lenz's repertoire is very broad and they have been praised for their exciting, specially tailored programs. Original compositions are a central feature of their repertoire, and many distinguished composers have been inspired by the duo's close ensemble playing to write new works for them. This has resulted in Duo Lenz playing and recording many premiere performances. Their programs also include compositions written by Richard Lenz himself.

Their passion for the guitar and its ever-expanding music literature has resulted in Duo Lenz establishing themselves as one of Australia's leading classical guitar duos, admired unanimously by the press and audiences alike.
