The José Carbó Trio present L'Heure Exquise

The José Carbó Trio: Andrew Blanch, José Carbó & Ariel Nurhadi

The José Carbó Trio: Andrew Blanch, José Carbó & Ariel Nurhadi

In a unique and exciting collaboration, Australia’s premier baritone José Carbó joins forces with spectacular emerging classical guitarists Andrew Blanch and Ariel Nurhadi to form The José Carbó Trio.

Their debut recital L’Heure Exquise (The Exquisite Hour), named after Reynaldo Hahn’s masterpiece, features music by Schubert, Faure, Debussy, Verdi and more, reimagined by the trio for the colourful and original musical setting of voice and two guitars.

The trio first appeared together at Canberra’s 2015 Voices in the Forest, after which Carbó invited the guitarists to collaborate on classical works long close to his heart that, for the most part, had never been heard with a guitar accompaniment.

"A quote often attributed to Chopin comes to mind – “Nothing is more beautiful than a guitar, save perhaps two.” Add to these the voice of Carbó and you have a sound that is quite thrilling." - Sounds Like Sydney

"Jose's voice was both rich and powerful, delicate and gentle, while the guitars blended to support and compliment the emotion of the pieces. The craftsmanship of the guitar-playing seemed effortless and intricate, while Jose's intense baritone voice explored a diverse range of gentle emotive top notes to forceful and demanding thrusts of classic operatic baritone." - Weekend Notes, Sydney
