The Grigoryan Brothers

Presented by Raz Music

Although regarded as Australia’s finest guitar duo performing much of the instrument’s standard classical repertoire, the Grigoryan Brothers' passion is to expand their horizons through new arrangements, their own compositions and commissions. This ambition can be heard as the brothers take the guitar into genres such as jazz, folk and contemporary music. There are no boundaries, only new frontiers to cross. In concert, mix it all together and you have a dimension to guitar-playing rarely seen in the musical world.

For this performance The Grigoryan Brothers will be performing works from their latest release, which sees a return to classical repertoire. The album will include songs by composers such as Bach, Elgar, Dvorak, Rachmaninoff, Faure, De Falla and Ponce all masterfully arranged for them by their father Edward. This familial collaboration is not new, with Grigoryan senior arranging the music of Tchaikovsky’s suite for piano The Seasons, for his sons' critically acclaimed 2012 release.
 
The program will also include other works highlighting the Slava and Leonard’s diverse skills: their deep appreciation of a broad spectrum of musical styles has resulted in many collaborations involving music, both written and improvised. Combine this with their classical training and the result is a unique sound incorporating all these influences. It is not classical, not jazz, not world ... it is the Grigoryan Brothers.

Set as cabaret style, share platters are available for pre-order (sweet and savoury) for $22 each. Call box office to book in now!

Adapted from the award winning picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, published by Macmillan Children’s books.

After a sellout season in 2013, the team behind The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo’s Child return with songs, laughs and scary fun for children aged 3 and up – and their grown-ups.
