Music of the Oud presented by Sydney Symphony Orchestra
About Music of the Oud
Joseph Tawadros is one of Australian music’s most impressive and charismatic figures: a composer, improviser, storyteller and a brilliant exponent of the oud, the Egyptian lute.
Classically trained on this king of Middle Eastern instruments, Tawadros’s virtuoso technique and curiosity have brought him into contact with the worlds of jazz, classical and world traditions to create music that transcends labels and demolishes borders.
Classical and original music from the crossroads of East and West, and of old and new, is woven around Tawadros’s Oud Concerto. He shares an almost telepathic rapport with his brother and percussionist, James, leading to moments of joyous spontaneous invention.
Surrounded by the talent of the Sydney Symphony this is sure to be an unforgettable experience of extraordinary music making.
