Sydney Guitar Duo Bring Alchemy to Tumbarumba


Andrew Blanch & Ariel Nurhadi present Alchemy: Guitar Duets from around the World
Artists On Parade in Tumbarumba on Sunday 12 May
Andrew Blanch and Ariel Nurhadi have been playing as a guitar duo since 2014. They have been described
as “ two stunning young guitarists…virtuosic ” (Sydney Arts Guide) and have been praised for their
“ dazzling guitar playing ” (ArtsHub). Their duo performances have taken them around Australia and New
Zealand, and they also collaborate with Australia’s celebrated baritone Josè Carbò in a group named The
Josè Carbò Trio.


Their current duo project entitled ‘Alchemy’, is named after the very first piece they learnt together, by the
late great Australian guitarist and composer Phillip Houghton. Alchemy is something of a ‘world-tour’,
featuring some of the finest music written/arranged for guitar duet, with masterpieces from France, Spain,
Brazil, Argentina, USA, and Australia, including Houghton’s acclaimed ‘Three Duets’ that encapsulates
Alchemy.


The duo completed a three-week tour of New Zealand in late 2018 and will be taking the program to
audiences in NSW, South Australia, Tasmania and the ACT before hitting the studio later in the year.
“This is not a concert for guitarists, or for those otherwise with some sort of 'insider knowledge'. This is a
concert for all, for anyone who hears a beautiful melody and feels something, hears a groovy rhythm and
likes to tap their foot, anyone who's open to letting a piece of music transport them to another world. We've
assembled a program of music that astonishes, inspires and moves us and we want others to share in the
pleasure of this music with us. Just thinking about the music on the program makes me excited, we really
can't wait to perform."
