Adored guitarists Slava and Leonard Grigoryan will bring a world-class intimate performance to Peninsula Grammar’s Performing Arts Centre on Tuesday, August 20, at 7pm.
Counted among the finest musicians of their generation, the Grigoryan brothers have developed a reputation for enthralling audiences with the energy of their performances and the breadth of their repertoire — embracing genres such as classical, jazz and contemporary music from around the world.
Between them, they have received four ARIAs and an incredible 25 ARIA nominations, recording 11 albums as a duo, with their 12th release coming out this year. The duo has been touring internationally since 2003, regularly performing throughout Europe, Asia, Australia, the US, South America, Africa, India and the Middle East.
A testament to their broad appeal and incredible skills is reflected in their recent tours and releases. In 2017-18 they performed as support for the Canadian singer/songwriter kd lang on her 25th anniversary Australian and US tour. This was followed immediately by another national tour sharing the stage and billing with the great flamenco guitarist Paco Pena.
Their diverse repertoire continues to present new opportunities for performances in traditional and unconventional settings, from projects with orchestras to duo performances in iconic classical venues such as London’s Wigmore Hall and Vienna’s Konzerthaus. The New York Times wrote: “Guitar playing of uncommon originality and authority. Musicality, expressivity and daring”, while Brisbane’s Courier Mail wrote: “The Grigoryans have a reputation of performing together so emphatically, they become extensions of each other.”
Tickets to this incredible performance on the Mornington Peninsula are $38, including GST. Book via
