Yes – it is terribly exciting!
The Classical Guitar Society of Victoria (CGSV) has been working with Melbourne-based composer Stuart Greenbaum, the Grigoryan Brothers and the Melbourne Planetarium to present the world premiere of “Natural Satellite”. This is a new suite for guitar duet inspired by the antics of orbital bodies.
At the world premiere on Friday November 15th, the Grigoryan Brothers will perform Stuart Greenbaum’s new five movement suite accompanied by a stunning visual display developed by Planetarium staff for the occasion.
