Grigoryan Brothers: Songs Without Words

Grigoryan Brothers: Songs Without Words

Riverina Conservatorium of Music (map)

Australia’s most respected guitar duo, The Grigoryan Brothers will be returning to Wagga Wagga to perform works from their latest release, Songs Without Words which sees a return to classical repertoire. 

The album includes 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 music....it is the Grigoryan Brothers!

Ticket prices: Adult $40, Concession (Health Care Card & Pension) $35, Student $25.

Riverine Club (map)

Like a river fed from many different tributaries, the music of Arabesk draws upon strong jazz influences from Django Reinhardt and Wes Montgomery as well as Eastern European gypsy and classical music, with a backdrop of African and Arabic rhythms. At any moment it will swing hard, or drop into a thick funk-pumped bassline, all the while with the violin floating above it. 

Arabesk are a powerhouse of invention and innovation.
