Sunshine Coast Council presents Opera Australia’s José Carbó and the Grigoryan Brothers in a celebration of Latin passion and beautiful music at Nambour Civic Centre on Thursday 20 March 2014 at 7.30pm.
Internationally-acclaimed baritone José Carbó is joined by renowned guitarists Slava and Leonard Grigoryan, for an evening of sensuous Latin music and tango, as the hit album ‘My Latin Heart’ comes to life on stage.
Slava and Leonard Grigoryan are regarded as one of Australia’s finest classical guitar duos. Between them, the pair has performed to audiences in concert halls and at music festivals across the globe, showing their diverse range of musical talent from classical, Latin, jazz, baroque and more.
José’s collection of Latin songs on the ABC Classics label shot straight to Number One on the Limelight Classical Music Charts and was nominated for the ARIA Award for Classical Record of the Year.
José Carbó was born in Argentina of Spanish and Italian descent and moved to Australia in 2002. The songs in My Latin Heart are a direct link to his grandfather, who was his greatest influence.
The concert represents some of the best from the repertoire of popular Latin American songs including Lara’s Granada, Piazzolla’s Ave Maria and Oblivion and brilliant tangos such as Caminito, Mi Buenos Aires querido and Adiós.
Audiences can expect an evening of sumptuous song, stunning strings and tantalizing tango.
