About the Event


Guitarist Andrew Blanch and cellist Anthony Albrecht join forces for a morning of ravishing music from the Baroque to Brazil. Amongst the exciting emergence of a new generation of classical musicians, guitarist Andrew Blanch stands out. Armed with formidable talent, passion, and conviction, Andrew has carved out his path to much acclaim. His independently-released album 'Spanish Guitar Music' (2015) and accompanying self-managed tour marked the auspicious beginnings of an active and multifaceted musical career today. Andrew was the winner of the Adelaide International Guitar Competition in 2019. A musician known for his "dramatic flair" and "fluent and virtuosic" performances (Seen and Heard International, Sydney Morning Herald), Anthony Albrecht has appeared with Pinchgut Opera, Van Diemen's Band, the Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra, the Australian Haydn Ensemble, New Vintage Baroque (NYC) and Il Pomo d'Oro. Recent solo engagements include an appearance in the woods of East Sussex as a guest of Sam Lee's 'Singing with Nightingales' project, a recital at the Handel and Hendrix House in London, a performance of Haydn's Cello Concerto in D at the Newcastle Music Festival and as concerto soloist with the Adelaide Baroque Orchestra.
