Joseph Tawadros AM is a leading oud virtuoso, brilliant composer, improvisor, storyteller and five-time ARIA winner.
The Joseph Tawadros Quartet features distinguished Sydney musicians with whom he shares a near telepathic rapport – his brother James Tawadros (percussion), bassist Karl Dunnicliff and jazz pianist Matt McMahon. Together their performances feature stunning invention and creativity.
The quartet is held together by the strength of Joseph’s original works, incorporating fusion, taking inspiration from the arabic modal system (maqam) and blending them seamlessly with elements of western classical, jazz, world, folk and even metal and bluegrass.
From thrilling and furiously paced numbers to beautifully introspective and tranquil tracks, it is woven together by Joseph’s trademark virtuosity and lyricism and the striking contemporary musicality of his oud.
Duration | Approximately two hours, including a twenty-minute interval.
Light Meals | Cheese and charcuterie platters can be pre-booked to enjoy before this concert.
