With a repertoire spanning centuries, continents and genres, amazing telepathy and the ability to draw emotion from every note, Slava & Leonard Grigoryan are justifiably regarded as Australia’s finest classical guitarists.
While it is their individual and combined artistry that brings the music alive, they are forever grateful to the composers and arrangers who have provided the framework for their performances. For this performance, Slava and Leonard are honouring those Past, Present and Future who have provided the fuel for their fire.
Past: Favourite works from their back catalogue of recordings – from Bach to Towner, from Tchaikovsky to Lovelady.
Present: Their own compositions and arrangements including a selection from the soundtrack to the movie ‘A Boy Called Sailboat’ which they wrote and recorded – due for global release in 2019. The movie has already won a number of awards including best Best Director and Best Screenplay at the prestigious Boston Film Festival.
Future: Audiences will have the opportunity to hear works from Slava and Leonard’s next recording project – to be released in late 2019 – of Handel keyboard suites masterfully arranged for them by their father Edward (a significant member of those to who their gratitude extends).
