Event Details

Joseph Tawadros with the Sydney Symphony.

Breaking boundaries. Tawadros and his oud transport us to parts beyond: Egypt and Australia, the past and the future of music.

Joseph Tawadros is one of Australian music’s most impressive and charismatic figures: a composer, improviser, storyteller and a brilliant exponent of the oud, the Egyptian lute. Classically trained on this king of Middle Eastern instruments, Tawadros’s virtuoso technique and curiosity have brought him into contact with the worlds of jazz, classical and world traditions to create music that transcends labels and shatters borders.

Classical and original music from the crossroads of East and West, and of old and new, is woven around Tawadros’s Oud Concerto. He shares an almost telepathic rapport with his brother James, leading to moments of joyous spontaneous invention.
