With Slava Grigoryan
ARIA Award-winning virtuoso guitarist and long-time friend of the Southern Cross Soloists, Slava Grigoryan headlines the ensemble’s first concert of 2021 officially kickstarting the journey toward their next jubilee.
With a scintillating program of Spanish and French masterworks, Slava and the ensemble traverse through European musical history, moving from the sizzling guitar works of the Spanish Baroque to the evocative masterpieces of Belle Époque greats Debussy and Ravel. This exotic program briefly visits Australian shores with the world premiere of a new work by Sydney composer Natalie Nicolas before culminating with the sultry, intoxicating beauty of Joaquin Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez.
“We always love playing with Slava and our audiences love to watch him: between his sensitive musical spirit to his incredible virtuosic dexterity, Slava never fails to mesmerise both the audience and his fellow musicians.” Tania Frazer – Artistic Director, Southern Cross Soloists
Slava Grigoryan – Guitarist
