Slava and Sharon GrigoryanThis collaboration from two of Australia’s finest classical musicians, Slava and Sharon Grigoryan, combines their formidable talents to present a concert for guitar and cello with works by Vivaldi, Granados, Piazzolla and more.

Collaborations have played a huge part in Grigoryan’s career, most notably as part of a trio with legendary USA guitarist Ralph Towner and Austrian guitarist Wolfgang Muthspiel, and performing as a duo with brother Leonard Grigoryan. He has received three ARIA awards and an incredible 24 ARIA award nominations. Slava has been touring internationally since 2003, regularly performing throughout Europe, Asia, Australia and the USA, as well as more exotic performances in Brazil, South Africa, India and the Middle East. In 2018, Slava delivered his fifth Adelaide Guitar Festival as artistic director.
