GRIGORYAN BROTHERS - BACH CONCERTOS
The Grigoryan Brothers return with an album of J.S. Bach’s best-loved concertos, newly arranged for two guitars recorded with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra conducted by Benjamin Northey. The two great forces in J.S. Bach’s life were music and family so it is entirely fitting that two brothers, Slava and Leonard Grigoryan, have come together to play these works. The parallels are even more poignant considering their father, Edward, created the arrangements on this disc, and that early rehearsals of this material involved their parents (Edward on violin, Irina on viola) and Slava’s wife Sharon (on cello). The intimacy and eternity of Bach’s music could hardly be better illustrated.
The tracks listed are Concerto for Two Violins in D minor BMV1043, Concerto for Keyboard in D minor BMV1052, Concerto for Violin & Oboe in C minor BMV1060R and Arioso from Cantanta BMV156.
