Event Description

Fresh off the back of their success BBC Proms performance at the Dubai Opera, the Joseph Tawadros trio is back by popular demand, all the way from London!

“One of the most impressive musicians Matt JT and JT in Dubai on stage (2)to emerge in Australia…with a dazzling technique dispensing hair-raising tempos… His writing displays a real depth of emotion…revelling in a zest for life and celebration.” The Australian

The origins of the oud lie in the ancient Arabic world but the music Joseph Tawadros conjures from it is forging a new music frontier. The virtuoso Sydney musician has transformed the way the fretless, round-backed string instrument is viewed, taking it out of its traditional Middle Eastern setting and into the realms of classical music and jazz. “I can improvise in a traditional style and play traditional music,” Tawadros says, “but I chose to bring something a little different and new to the oud.” Sydney Morning Herald, October 2012
