Regional Tour of Victoria: Completed!

I recently completed a 14 concert tour of regional Victoria, sponsored by Regional Arts Victoria and Creative Victoria. The tour was promoted by JustShows2Go and it was a pleasure visiting some parts of Victoria that I haven’t been to for a while, and other parts that I’ve never seen! It was really enjoyable playing with Tonié Field, Cameron Sloan and Michael MacManus in the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music Guitar Quartet (MCM Guitar Quartet). Our program was a mix of Australian, […]

Mt Beauty Music Festival

I recently performed at the Mt Beauty Music Festival and had the pleasure of receiving the Clifford Hocking Memorial Scholarship. Thank you very much to the organisers of this scholarship which will allow me to record Nigel Westlake’s ‘Mosstrooper Peak’ Sonata for Guitar.   Attached are some photos from the event!  

St George’s Travancore Music Series

Recently I performed at St George’s Anglican Parish as part of the Travancore Music Series. It was a fantastic night and it was a pleasure to see so many faces, new and old, in the audience. The event was really well organised and all the credit goes to Leonie Thompson and Nick Slaney for the hard work they put in. The music series is supporting the purchase of a new piano in the church that will allow the use of this […]

Jeremy Dickey

Recently I recorded a couple works by the Australian composer and author, Jeremy Dickey. I am currently working with Jeremy on recording a full length CD of these works and have been having a lot of pleasure working with the composer on bringing these works to life. Jeremy and I have known each other for a long time now and first met at one of the increasingly popular soirees that Ron Payne regularly hosts in Kew. Many of Australia’s young guitarists […]

Evan Hopkins Cantata BWV 27

J.S. Bach Cantata BWV 27 Chorus & Recitative for Two Guitars

Over the past few years I have completed a few projects that I would like to release to the public. I would like to begin with an arrangement I made of J.S. Bach’s Chorus & Recitative from Cantata BWV 27 for two guitars. This project was completed during my time in Spain while studying the Master de Guitarra at The University of Alicante. This is a particularly beautiful cantata brimming with melancholic themes and sombre descending lines throughout. Especially haunting is the […]

Recording Process

Recording process

We’ve finished the recording process at Old Skool Studios and I’m quite happy with the result! You can hear the recordings by clicking the Video Tab to the left or by subscribing to me on YouTube. The process was really great and fun to see Dave in action behind the desk; I’m a bit of a recording nerd with stuff like this, I love seeing mixing desks and all the gear they have. The videos we’ve released coincide with the […]
