Australian born guitarist Craig Ogden is one of the most exciting artists of his generation. One of the UK’s most recorded guitarists, his recordings for Virgin/EMI, Chandos, Nimbus, Hyperion, Sony and Classic FM have received wide acclaim, with four No. 1 albums in the classical chart.
Craig Ogden’s performances have taken him throughout the UK, into Europe, the USA, South East Asia, South Africa and Australia in recital, on radio and on television. In recent seasons he has performed with the Philharmonia Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Hallé Orchestra, Ulster Orchestra (world premiere of new concerto by Ciaran Farrell), Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, City of London Sinfonia (UK premiere of Erik Esenvalds’ ‘Songs of Silence’), the WDR Rundfunk Orchestra in Cologne and the Aalborg Symphony Orchestra in Denmark.
This concert with the Royal Northern Sinfonia offers the chance to hear acclaimed guitarist Craig Ogden in the world’s favourite guitar concerto, Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez (think Brassed Off); he’ll be playing a selection of solo items too, while Royal Northern Sinfonia leader Bradley Creswick directs Barber’s Adagio, Prokofiev’s firecracker of a Classical Symphony, and Mozart’s sunlit 36th.
