In anticipation of their next recording, the Grigoryan Brothers perform brand new arrangements of songs by composers including Bach, Elgar, Dvorak, Tchaikovsky, Faure, de Falla and Debussy.
The Grigoryan Brothers’ passion for expanding the classical guitar repertoire and delving into genres outside the classical world is reflected in their six recordings to date. Their 2014 release This Time, included works written specifically for Slava and Leonard by friends from around the world.
Their next recording – to be released in 2017 – sees a return to classical repertoire of songs masterfully arranged for them by their father Edward. This familial collaboration is not new, with Grigoryan senior arranging the music of Tchaikovsky’s suite for piano ‘The Seasons’, for his sons’ critically acclaimed 2012 release.
