Internationally award-winning guitar brothers Ziggy and Miles Johnston are renowned for their ability to inject contagious energy and inimitable zeal into their interpretations. The brothers are currently making their mark in the US studying Master of Music at The Juilliard School in New York City, where they are studying under multiple GRAMMY award winner, Sharon Isbin. In January this year, Miles and Ziggy became the first guitarists to perform in Juilliard’s annual chamber music festival, ChamberFest, presenting the US premiere of The Light on the Edge by Phillip Houghton.
This concert features beloved works from the guitar duo canon alongside timeless piano classics reimagined for two guitars. Containing Piazzolla’s rhythmic and dynamic Tango Suite, Australian composer Richard Charlton’s beautiful Romanza, Westlake’s vibrant Songs from the Forest, their own arrangement of Debussy’s famous Clair de Lune, and Beethoven’s magical Moonlight Sonata, this is their premiere Australian concert since beginning their studies in America.
