Brothers get creative with classics

THEY'RE definitely up for a challenge.

Brothers and guitar virtuosos Slava and Leonard Grigoryan are touring Australia with new album The Seasons - and yes, it's the famous Tchaikovsky piano piece.

"Tchaikovsky's The Seasons has been on the Grigoryan family 'to do list' for 15 years," Slava said.

"Many years ago I'd performed a few movements from The Seasons which Dad had arranged for me but you really need two guitars to cover the full dynamic range and detail."

Keeping it in the family, the brothers' dad Eduard has rewritten the famous songs to be played on guitar.

This tour sees the pair pushing the limits of what two classical guitars can accomplish together.

Check them out at the Jetty Memorial Theatre on October 19.
