Andrew Blanch, (winner of the 2016 Melbourne Guitar Festival Concert Artist Competition) and Ariel Nurhadi have been playing as a guitar duo since 2014. They have been described as “two stunning young guitarists…virtuosic” (Sydney Arts Guide) and have been praised for their “dazzling guitar playing” (ArtsHub).
Alchemy is something of a ‘world-tour’, featuring some of the finest music written/arranged for guitar duet, with masterpieces from France, Germany, Spain, Brazil, Argentina, USA, and Australia, including Houghton’s acclaimed ‘Three Duets’ that encapsulates Alchemy.
This concert will be 60mins without intermission.
At the conclusion of the concert, everyone is invited to join Andrew and Ariel for refreshments which include complimentary beer, wine and cheese thanks to our good friends at Dainton Beer and Delinquente Wine!
There will also be fantastic guitar displays from local luthiers, so enjoy having a ‘pluck’ and chat with these wonderful luthiers!
PLEASE NOTE: Our last MGF concert sold out 2 weeks prior to the event. So reserve your seat early to avoid disappointment!
