Event Details

Andrew Blanch and Ariel Nurhadi have been described as “two stunning young guitarists…virtuosic” (Sydney Arts Guide) and have been praised for their “dazzling guitar playing” (ArtsHub).  In this concert the duo present their current project entitled Alchemy, named after the late, great Australian guitarist and composer Phillip Houghton. Alchemy is something of a ‘world-tour’, featuring the finest music written and arranged for guitar duet, with masterpieces from France, Germany, Spain, Brazil, Argentina, USA, and Australia, including Houghton’s acclaimed Three Duets that encapsulates Alchemy.

Andrew Blanch and Ariel Nurhadi have been playing as a guitar duo since 2014. Their performances have taken them around Eastern Australia, and they also collaborate with Australia’s celebrated baritone Josè Carbò in a group named The Josè Carbò Trio. In 2018, the duo performed at the Glebe Music Festival and the Newcastle Music Festival with acclaimed soprano Deborah Humble, played a live set on FINE Music FM and toured New Zealand before embarking on a regional tour of Australia.
