A night of guitar mastery.

Slava & Leonard Grigoryan will be joined by Austrian guitarist Wolfgang Muthspiel at the Lawson Mechanics Institute on Saturday, 16 February.

Originally scheduled as an MGT tour featuring Wolfgang, Slava and USA legend Ralph Towner, Leonard’s last-minute inclusion is a result of Towner falling ill – while he cannot make the tour, the good news is he is recovering well. Audiences can look forward to hearing existing compositions by Towner, Muthspiel & Grigoryan along with new works especially composed for this tour. The concert will recall the wonderful performance to a sold-out audience by Towner, Muthspiel and Grigoryan at the Mechanics Institute in 2014.

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

Muthspiel is one of the most revered guitarists on the world stage. Soon after graduating from the Berklee College of Music in Boston he joined the Gary Burton Quintet, the first guitarist to do so after Pat Metheny. A prolific collaborator, he has recorded and toured with the likes of Trilok Gurtu, Dhafer Youssef, Brian Blade, Rebecca Bakken, Youssou N’Dour, Maria Joao, Dave Liebman, Paul Motian, Gary Peacock and many others. Since 2014 he has released three albums as a bandleader on the iconic German label ECM. These projects have seen him in the studio and on tour with jazz luminaries including Brad Mehldau, Brian Blade, Larry Grenadier, Ambrose Akinmusire and Eric Harland. Among his numerous awards are the Hans Koller prize for ‘Musician of the Year’ and ‘European Jazz Musician of the Year’. The Musicians Magazine elected him among the ‘top ten guitarists in the world’.

Bringing diverse influences, stunning technique and risk-taking improvisations – performed on an array of guitars including classical, baritone, 12 string and electric guitar – the Grigoryan Brothers with Wolfgang Muthspiel promises to be a unique musical experience.
