Catch Up with Nexo Live
Nexo, the Perfect Accompaniment to Saffire
Group Technologies is extremely proud to announce that Saffire, The Australian Guitar Quartet, have chosen to use Nexo
on their 2004 national tour, in support of the group’s amazing new CD titled “Nostalgica”. Nexo will provide
the ultimate sonic environment to capture the acoustic sounds of this critically acclaimed ensemble and we urge you to make
every effort to catch Saffire live to hear it for yourself. Both Saffire and Nexo will blow your minds!
Saffire is Karin Schaupp, Gareth Koch, Antony Field and Slava Grigoryan. Originally coming
together in early 2003 for a one-off performance, these four individually acclaimed guitarists agreed to form a permanent
ensemble in between their own busy recording and performing schedules. They burst on to the classical music scene in 2003
following the release of their debut self-titled CD ‘Saffire’ on ABC Classics.
Testimony to the impact of this collaboration came by way of critical acclaim and public enthusiasm resulting in the debut
CD storming to the number 1 position in only its second week in the market. Saffire followed this by winning the ARIA
Award for Best Classical Album in October 2003.
2004 NATIONAL TOUR
Following the success of their debut ARIA Award winning CD, Saffireare back with a new CD and extensive national tour featuring;
the world premiere of a piece written especially for the ensemble by renowned composer Nigel Westlake, along with new arrangements
of pieces by Bartok, Piazzolla, Deep Purple, Bill Wheelan (composer of Riverdance) and more. This eclectic selection sees
them stretching the boundaries of guitar ensembles.
This is an opportunity to hear the passion and beauty of four of Australia’s finest and most respected classical
guitarists in a very special performance, through the phenomenally sounding Nexo. We will have more on this winning combination
in the weeks ahead. Stay tuned.
Here’s where you can see (and hear) this awesome combination.
