Suite mágica - Live performance by guitarist Andrew Blanch and harpist Emily Granger.
After a successful inaugural tour across NSW, Music In The Regions is continuing to bring high quality classical music performances to regional NSW audiences. Its next series of concerts includes the Barrington Coast featuring celebrated guitarist Andrew Blanch and harpist Emily Granger.
For this tour Blanch and Granger will pair up for Suite mágica, where the extraordinary combination of guitar and harp will be applied to a selection of works that display the energy, versatility and beauty of these much-loved instruments.
Suite mágica will showcase Blanch and Granger sharing some of the finest music from their explorations, including exciting new commissions by Australia’s leading composers, arrangements of popular favourites and more.
Rarely seen together, this instrumental pairing is at once both fresh and familiar. Side by side on stage, the instruments face each other like an enchanted reflection – with striking visual and aural similarities. In this way, the sound world created by these two plucked string instruments is not dissimilar to that of a guitar duo – the harp, with its 47 resonant strings and a collection of extended techniques, providing an expanded range of expressive possibilities to the more common two-guitar pairing.
