The Cooma concert will be part of their Australia-wide “This Time” tour. This much anticipated CD release, also named “This Time” will be the the sixth in the series of CDs that have made the Grigoryans a household name in Australia and internationally, one of Australian’s most sort after musical exports.
“This Time” continues the journey that the Grigoryan Brothers started with their 2009 release “Distance” which was reviewed as “world-music”, “classical music” and then was named by UK magazine Mojo as no. 2 in the top 10 “jazz” CDs of 2010.
