Jorge Amaral and Mia Pomerantz-Amaral formed Duo Amaral in 2008 and were soon established in the international guitar scene, garnering high accolades from the media and from devoted audiences. During a tour in Italy, their recital was described in Il Messaggero Veneto as “masterful, with poetic virtuosity and intensity of expression”. Mike Telin of ClevelandClassical.com, described the duo as "superb, thoughtful musicians". 

Their debut album 'Súplica' was released in 2011 and featured ‘Saggio’ as a world-premier. Céline Keating of Minor 7th Magazine described the CD as “...a sublime album of classical music for two guitars...”. Their Second album 'Textura' was released in 2013 and includes several of their own arrangements. Al Kunze of Soundboard Magazine describes: “Duo Amaral’s Textura is a superb disc, featuring beautiful music, exquisite playing, and exemplary recording.  Mia Pomerantz-Amaral and Jorge Amaral play with extraordinary precision allied with delicacy, nuance, and virtuosity in equal measures.” (March 2014). And Bradford Werner of This is Classical Guitar continues: Textura “…deliver[s] some of the best ensemble work, musical expression, and repertoire. Another great album release!… One of the premier classical guitar duos of today!" Their latest album ‘Key West’ was released in March of 2017 and features an all Latin-American program including the world premier of ‘Key West Suite’, dedicated to the duo. Classical Guitar Magazine described the CD as “… a knockout - brimming with sensational, synchronous playing on a lively and challenging set of modern pieces… outstanding duo”.
