Craig Ogden and Manchester Camerata: A Celebration of the Guitar

With a series of albums that have topped the UK Classical charts, Australian
guitarist Craig Ogden is an eloquent ambassador for his instrument, and he won
many friends when stepping in at short notice for Miloš Karadaglić two seasons
ago. Now back with the Manchester Camerata he brings a collection of old and
new works, showcasing the guitar’s versatility and his effortless virtuosity.
Albeniz’s exotic Asturias and Giuliani’s elegant Guitar Concerto rub shoulders
with Göran Sollscher’s dextrous arrangement of Here Comes the Sun, and
Einaudi’s hauntingly beautiful Due Tramonti. Tears will be no doubt be jerked
in Samuel Barber’s heartfelt Adagio and the house will probably be brought down
when Luigi Boccherini’s Fandango struts its exuberant stuff. There’s much more
besides to enjoy, so whether you’re a fan of the classical guitar or a newcomer
to its delights, this is one for your must-see list.

Pre-concert talk, 6.20pm in the auditorium:
