Award winning, international guitar duo performing a show of what it means to be Australian, inspired by objects from the National Museum of Australia. Guitarists Slava and Leonard Grigoryan are counted among the finest musicians of their generation. They embrace a range of genres, drawing on classical, jazz and contemporary music from around the world.
A musical reflection of Australia which was commissioned by the National Museum in Canberra to celebrate its 20th anniversary. Slava and Leonard Grigoryan chose 18 objects from the museum which they felt were a wonderful representation of what it means to be Australian. Separated from each other in different States during pandemic lockdown, the brothers worked remotely to compose pieces together, representing each of the museum objects. The result is This Is Us.
The 18 museum objects which inspire this performance include a gold mourning locket containing a portrait and lock of hair of boxer Les Darcy, Prototype No. 1 Holden Sedan and a stream anchor from Matthew Flinder's ship the Investigator. A digital programme detailing all 18 items will be downloadable through a QR code.
