Three different styles and approaches of playing the guitar, three individualists, three generations from three continents - MGT – standing for Wolfgang Muthspiel, Slava Grigoryan and Ralph Towner.
The birth of this trio happened in 2005 during two large tours and studio recordings in Australia, where Slava Grigoryan – the youngest of the trio – lives. For the first time together in concert in Europe, the trio will perform a string of spellbinding performances during a European tour in March 2009 accompanied by the release of their album on material records.
The music of the Trio is mainly composed by Ralph Towner and Wolfgang Muthspiel. Together they create their own distinctive sound cosmos by the use of various guitars (baritone guitar, 12- string guitar, electric guitar, classical guitar).
The program shows the common ground of the three musicians – all classically trained and inspired, while each guitarist brings a distinctive individual approach to composition and performance.
US guitar legend Ralph Towner, the extraordinary Austrian innovator and European Jazz price Winner Wolfgang Muthspiel and Australian wunderkind Slava Grigoryan will perform solo, duo and trio sets for the audience with pre-composed material, spontaneous composition and improvised mastery.
MGT goes Europe after large sold out tours through Australia!
