Joseph Tawadros w/ the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra
Multi-award winning composer and virtuoso of the oud, a Middle Eastern lute, Cairo-born Joseph Tawadros AM, is an original contemporary performer with a fascinating, wide-ranging career. Technically astonishing, yet blessed with the ability to laugh at conventional taboos, his Concerto for Oud and Orchestra is a rare and thrilling work, cinematic in scope and full of drama. At times meditative and at others exhilarating, this lush program stands at the crossroads of East and West, tradition and innovation. Conducted by Benjamin Northey, Joseph is joined by his brother James on percussion and a 52-piece Adelaide Symphony Orchestra.
