Kunda has been lauded ‘among the best of his generation of world-class performers.’ He was a 2013 finalist for the prestigious Music Council of Australia Freedman Classical Fellowship, and recently received his doctorate in guitar performance from the Australian National University. Bradley is a current member of Australia’s premier guitar quartet Guitar Trek, as well as the highly successful Brew Guitar Duo.

In 2013, Bradley signed a recording contract with US-based label Soundset Recordings (a division of the multinational distributor Tresóna Multimedia). His debut solo recording In the Woods has just been released on the label and is available for digital download at iTunes, Amazon, and at Bradley’s Australian launch of the disc will take place next month with concerts in Sydney, Canberra and Dungog.

Bradley will be joined in these concerts by stunning young soprano Rebecca MacCallion. Rebecca has been a soloist with Melbourne Opera and has given national radio broadcasts on ABC Classic FM. A winner of the Australia-Britain Society Award for Voice, she has participated in masterclasses with Barbara Bonney and Gerhard Kahry. A highlight of her current collaboration with Bradley is a world premiere arrangement for voice and guitar of Maurice Ravel’s exquisitely-crafted Five Greek Folksongs.

The Canberra concert is a special event in this tour as it also features the miraculous viola playing of John Gould in a beautiful arrangement for viola and guitar of Franz Schubert’s enduringly popular “Arpeggione” sonata. John is well-known in Canberra as Director of the Maruki Community Orchestra. He was a founding member of the Carl Pini String Quartet and has been a concerto soloist with the London and Sydney
Symphony Orchestras.

This Canberra concert is the last in a tour of launch events that include a live radio broadcast on Fine Music 102.5 (Sydney), and performances at the James Theatre (Dungog) and St Stephen’s Uniting Church (Sydney).
