Event description

Description

Soprano Rebecca MacCallion joins Guitar Trek’s Bradley Kunda to celebrate the combined beauty of the voice and the guitar. The two made their ensemble debut in ABC Classic FM’s Sunday Live series, and have since been invited to share their unique programs with audiences across Australia, Spain, Montenegro and Italy. Together, they are rejuvenating the repertoire for guitar and voice with significant new arrangements and compositions.

Their debut CD includes arrangements of two song cycles by Rodrigo and Ravel, alongside two classic favourites: Schubert’s Standchen “Leise flehen meine Leider”, and the Irish folksong Down By The Salley Gardens. A major feature on this CD is a new song cycle Bradley was commissioned to write using the poetry of Henry Lawson. Celebrating the 150th anniversary of Lawson’s birth, this work is a significant addition to the repertoire for voice and guitar, and is set in the Romantic musical style of Lawson’s time.'

It is perhaps of natural consequence that Kunda's own compositional output is dedicated largely to the guitar. His creative process often involves exploring other art forms. For example, his recent suite for flute and guitar, Spirit of the Plains (2015), draws on the sound world of the Belle Epoque to evoke the sinuous curves of Sydney Long's Art Nouveau-styled Australian bush. He will be joined by flautist Laura Van Rijn, 1st-Prize winner of the 2011 International Flute Competition and member of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra.


Bradley Kunda is a musician of extraordinarily diverse talents who believes in the classical ideal of the complete musician, devoted to performance, composition, teaching, and writing about music.

Kunda is a Doctor of Music Performance of the Australian National University, where he trained as a classical guitarist. He has since become a long-standing member of Australia's premier guitar quartet Guitar Trek, performing alongside his mentor Timothy Kain AM. Kunda has performed in major festivals and concert series throughout Australia, including the Adelaide and Darwin International Guitar Festivals, the Canberra International Music Festival, and the ABC's Sunday Live series. A passionate exponent of new Australian music, Kunda has premiered works by Peter Sculthorpe, Robert Davidson, Marc Isaacs and Richard Charlton.
