ORCHESTRA OF THE SWAN WILL PERFORM WITH CRAIG OGDEN
Australian-born Classic FM celebrity guitarist Craig Ogden, one of the most exciting artists of his generation, will open the Inaugural Worcestershire Concert Series of Orchestra of the Swan at Huntingdon Hall, Worcester on 3rd February 2016. A real chance to get up-close and intimate in this converted Methodist chapel and hear the world-renowned Vivaldi Guitar Concerto and the most popular concerto from the late classical period by the great virtuoso Mauro Giuliani - a substantial work with beautiful melodies and dynamic, virtuosic scales and arpeggios -.
Accompanied by a small group of 13 elite orchestral players, this concert should appeal to guitar aficionados and music lovers alike.
Craig Ogden can be heard a second time on 24th February as part of Orchestra of the Swan’s Malvern Theatres ‘double concerto’ series during which he will perform Rodrigo's highly popular and technically challenging Concierto de Aranjuez, and Vivaldi's timeless Guitar Concerto in D with it's beautiful, reflective slow movement and catchy, lively outer movements.
With five albums going straight to No 1 in the UK Classical Charts upon release, and the youngest instrumentalist to have received a Fellowship Award from the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, this UK resident is the country’s most prominent and recorded guitarist. There will be a free pre-concert talk with Craig Ogden and conductor David Curtis for those purchasing a ticket for the concert.
