Songs Without Words: The Grigoryan Brothers

"There is something very intimate about a performance with just two musicians, especially when they clearly have such a deep bond. The warm acoustics of the Recital Hall added to the sense of togetherness...It really was a delight to spend a couple of hours in the company of such masterful musicians."

Diana Carroll, Performing ArtsHub
Concert review: k.d. lang at the Riverside Theatre

"Australia’s finest classical guitar duo Slava and Leonard Grigoryan opened the show with an astonishing display of acoustic pyrotechnics. Their lightning-fast finger work and drumming on the bodies of their guitars created both an intimate and exciting atmosphere as they played like extensions of each other.

As world class artists the Grigoryan Brothers are well up to the task of fully engaging with a rowdy pop concert audience."

Ray Purvis, The West Australian
Grigoryan Brothers make their guitars sing with many voices

"But perhaps the highlight of the night was their superb performance of Nigel Westlake’s Song from the Forest, originally composed for homegrown guitar great John Williams and Timothy Kain — a mantle from two masters of their instruments worthily passed on to this exciting duo from the new generation.

Steve Moffatt, The Daily Telegraph
This Time

"The majority of the works on this album have been written, or re-worked specifically for the duo. This revering by the composers for the performers and vice versa is elucidated powerfully in the musicianship throughout and is what makes it a stand-out...I continue to find new joy, new adventures in this album with each fresh listening."

Mandy Stefanakis, The Music Trust
Review | Grigoryan Brothers: 'This Time' is music to enhance your day

"If you have not spent much time listening to contemporary classical guitar music, this album could be an excellent place to begin. It has plenty of variety and beauty, without some of the challenging and foreign sounds that may be at first off-putting to a new listener.

David McKay, ClassikON
Album review: Exceptional guitar duo the Grigoryan Brothers just continue to amaze

"The brothers’ ensemble playing — the precision and energy — is highlighted on the Mosstrooper Peak section itself, with intricate passages played in close harmony. Nara Inlet is more elegiac while Butterfly Bay contains all the tenderness and grief a father feels for a lost child."
