Described by Classical Guitar magazine as "premier league quality", this truly international duo combines the virtuoso guitar talents of Peter Constant (Australian) and Marion Schaap (Dutch). They met whilst completing their Master of Music degrees at Yale University, USA (Benjamin Verdery) and for more than a decade their ‘first love’ has been playing together.

The duo ‘Z.o.o.’ has been based in the Netherlands for the past 10 years. Their impeccable ensemble playing, passionate music-making and on-stage repartee has made them one of the most popular guitar ensembles on the Dutch chamber music circuit. ‘Z.o.o.’ repertoire includes original transcriptions of Bach, Scarlatti, Schumann, Poulenc, Milhaud etc. Further, there is also now a large body of works written especially for them, indeed Peter and Marion have built a substantial reputation for presenting exciting new repertoire in concerts and special workshops.

They have worked in film, television, radio and in total appear on some 14 commercial CD recordings. Recent appearances have included the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, the Darwin International Guitar Festival, the International Guitar Festival of Great Britain, Staunton Music Festival (Virginia), the Canadian Tulip Festival, the Jazz- und Klassiktage Tübingen (Germany) and the prestigious Grachtenfestival, Amsterdam. They play on ‘new generation’ guitars made by renowned Australian luthiers Greg Smallman and Paul Sheridan.

Peter Constant was ‘most outstanding graduate’ of the Canberra School of Music (Timothy Kain) in 1989. Marion Schaap was a distinguished graduate of Sweelinck Conservatory Amsterdam (Lex Eisenhardt) before going to Yale.
