Past, Present & Future

Grigoryan Brothers 

With a repertoire spanning centuries, continents and genres, amazing telepathy and the ability to draw emotion from every note, Slava and Leonard Grigoryan are justifiably regarded as Australia’s finest classical guitarists.

It is not uncommon to hear painters, sculptors, writers and musicians speak of how their art flows
through them, not from them - they are mere conduits. And so it is for the Grigoryan Brothers whose performances are marked by an intangible connection to the soul of the music they play. 

They are so ‘in the moment’ that the term mindfulness seems at odds with their state of mind – more to the point, they are free of thought and allow the music to just be.

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 & 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
award winning movie A Boy Called Sailboat which they wrote and recorded and is due for global release in 2019.

Future Audiences will have the opportunity to hear works from Slava and Leonard’s next recording
project to be released in late 2019, featuring Handel keyboard suites masterfully arranged for them by their father Edward.
