Johannes Möller is Coming Back Down Under Next Month!

Fresh off the back off an extremely successful concert by the wonderful Canberran guitarist Minh Le Hoang (which I unfortunately wasn’t able to attend in the end, due to an unfortunate set of circumstances), the Melbourne Guitar Foundation have another fantastic concert lined up for Melburnian guitar aficionados.

If you’re looking for something to do in the evening of June 11th I highly recommend you head along to St Mary’s Church, 430 Queensbury Street, North Melbourne to check out none other than Johannes Möller.

Johannes, winner of the 2010 GFA guitar competition, is returning Down Under to play a full recital with a short support act featuring two of Melbourne Conservatorium of Music’s tertiary guitar students, Julia Bakowski and Yunjia Liu.

Melbourne Guitar Quartet – Album Launch Tonight!

Melbourne Guitar Quartet – comprising Ben Dix, Tonie Field, Jeremy Tottenham and Peter Karutz – are launching their third album tonight with a recital at the Melbourne Recital Centre.

This promises to be an evening of the very highest standard of guitar playing and the most delicious music, featuring a compilation of Spanish and French original and arranged music transformed for guitar family from elsewhere in the classical oeuvre. Works featured on the album and played for us this evening will be Debussy’s Clair de Lune, Ravel’s Pavane for a Dead Princess as well as works by Albeniz and Granados.

Note I say guitar family – the guys don’t just play four standard guitars. Nope, they really explore the different sounds and textures that four different kinds of classical guitar can make together, performing on classical bass, baritone, standard, treble and octave guitars. It’s really quite a special sound and one that you shouldn’t miss this evening!
