International guitarist Craig Ogden to play Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez, September 30th 2017

Australian guitarist Craig Ogden is commonly known as the Aled Jones of the guitar world – one of the most electrifying classical guitar players of his generation. His albums frequently top the UK Classical Charts and composers are lining up to write music for him.

We are thrilled to announce that he will be joining Ely Sinfonia to play what is arguably the most famous guitar concerto of all time, Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez, in Ely Cathedral on 30th September 2017. Inspired by the gardens at Philip II’s spring palace, the Palacio Real de Aranjuez, this exquisite piece evokes the sounds of nature to transport the listener to another place and time.

The Concierto forms the centrepiece of an exciting programme that also includes Rimsky-Korsakov’s Capriccio Espagnol and Danzon no.2, a delightful little piece by the Mexican composer Arturo Márquez, and finishes with Beethoven’s virtuoso Symphony no.2.

Dvorak’s ‘American’ string quartet draws inspiration from life in the new world; its music, birdsong and, even, its railways. Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco’s 1951 Quintet for Guitar and Strings fizzes with the same energy and optimism, as does Haydn’s Piano Concerto in D major in a transcription for accordion.

​Excerpts from a Midsummer Night’s Dream are the hors d’oeuvres of this opening Brandenburg Sinfonia concert. The Rodrigo, with international guitar soloist Craig Ogden, promises to be a special treat – ‘arguably one of the most popular concertos of all time, thanks in no small measure to the extraordinary beauty of its central Adagio.’ (Gramophone). Beatles’ songs arranged for guitar and orchestra will provide lighter fare before the main course: Beethoven’s Symphony No 7 in A major, ‘the apotheosis of the dance’, offering ‘a joyous lifting of restraints and an outpouring of mockery’. Craig Ogden’s recording of the concerto displays ‘relaxed natural musicality’, ‘fluency’, and ‘superb technique’. (Gramophone). In association with Orchestras Live.

Over the years John and Cleo played host to such diverse performers as Eddi Reader, Fenella Fielding, Darius Brubeck, Alexander Armstrong, and numerous others from the worlds of music, theatre and the arts.

* Due to a muscle strain in his right hand, Miloš Karadaglić has had to withdraw from this performance. We are very glad to have Craig Ogden to take his place on this occasion

Long before the Kirov Ballet got round to staging their Romeo and Juliet ballet using Prokofiev’s music in 1940, the bulk of the score was widely heard in a suite in which the composer arranged the most vivid moments of the score for concert performance. Audiences can’t have been in any doubt as to the characters and events Prokofiev was describing in what is undoubtedly one of the most remarkable conjurings of character, mood and circumstance in musical history. Before this ground-shaking depiction of Shakespeare’s Montagues and Capulets comes a treat from Australian-born guitarist Craig Ogden: Rodrigo's sublime set of Spanish dances Fantasía para un gentilhombre.

"what this music needs is zip and verve, and Craig Ogden and the Carduccis have an abundance of these."
CHRIS RAMSDEN

Craig Ogden was born in Australia but has been based in UK since 1990. He is considered one of the world's finest classical guitarists: in December 2004, he was honoured by the RNCM with a Fellowship in recognition of his achievements.

The Anglo-Irish Carducci Quartet is recognised as one of today's most successful string quartets. As international competition winners, their playing combines 'high octane playing with devil-may-care spontaneity'.

The collaboration of Craig and the Carducci enables us to hear two guitar quintets, of which that by Castelnuovo-Tedesco is both tuneful and charming – and a first for Ilkley! The evening also features Craig in guitar solos and the Carducci in the fourth of Mozart's string quartets dedicated to Haydn.

Orchestra of the Swan

M&G Classical Concerts Orchestral Series 2015-16

Pergolesi - Concertino for string orchestra
Puccini - Crisantemi
Vivaldi - Guitar Concerto
Arnold - Concerto for Guitar
Britten - Simple Symphony

The popular and renowned guitarist Craig Ogden joins the Orchestra of the Swan for an evening of music from England and Italy, for which he has chosen concertos by Vivaldi and Malcolm Arnold. Both concertos are sure to delight; Malcolm Arnold’s writing is eternally witty and polished, whilst Vivaldi’s concerto contains the most beautiful and simple slow movement.

Orchestra of the Swan complements Craig’s selection by opening the evening’s performance with Pergolesi’s sparkling Concertino for strings. During his all too brief life - he died from tuberculosis at the age of 26 – Pergolesi was most widely known as an opera composer, but his concertos show a fine degree of skill and craftsmanship due to his experience as a violinist and a composer.

Britten’s bravura Simple Symphony, so called as its main themes are based on some of Britten’s earliest compositions, is a work of great wit and humour. Britten’s alliterative movement titles - Boisterous Bourrée, Playful Pizzicato and Frolicsome Finale - give a clear indication to performer and audience of his intentions.


The programme is contrasted by a piece of Italian opera with Crisantemi from Puccinis Manon Lescau. This was originally composed as a memorial to his friend the Duke of Aosta, referring to chrysanthemums - the Italian flower of mourning.

PRE-CONCERT TALK - 6.30PM | Free to ticket holders

Enhance your concert experience. Prior to each concert either a member of the orchestra or a soloist leads a short talk/discussion regarding the orchestra itself or themes covered during the following concert. There is also a chance for the audience to ask any questions. If you have a ticket for the concert you are welcome to attend the talk free of charge.

Having played to great acclaim here in December 2014, we are very excited to welcome back one of the UK’s most recorded guitarists for a Valentine’s Special this spring.

Australian born Craig Ogden is one of the most exciting artists of his generation; his Classic FM albums The Guitarist and Summertime both shot straight to No.1 in the UK classical chart in summer 2010 and 2011 respectively followed by the release of Christmas Time in November 2013. Both Summer Guitar which was released in June 2014 and Craig’s latest CD Craig Ogden and Friends released in June 2015 went straight to No. 1 in the classical chart.

Much like a modern artist's response to a classical masterpiece, a range of critically-acclaimed contemporary poets including: Simon Armitage, Gillian Clarke, Nick Drake, Carol Ann Duffy, Craig Raine, Peter Oswald and Jackie Kay, will be inspired by some of England’s most beloved wordsmiths, before responding with new and celebrated works of their own. Actors and musicians will bring both the traditional canon and the contemporary replies to life.

Following the success of last year’s Winter’s Tales, in which actors read aloud stirring short stories under the glorious candlelight of the Playhouse, this series brings a melting pot of classic and contemporary poetry to the stage in what is bound to be a memorable and evocative evening.

With: Craig Ogden

Hall Two, King's Place, London

Celebrated guitarist and Classic FM favourite Craig Ogden presents a unique collaboration with Norwegian 7-string metal guitarist/singer/songwriter The Commander in Chief. This will be their very first live UK performance in a programme to include a variety of solos from Craig and duos from this extraordinary pairing of two very different types of guitar. Together Craig and The Commander in Chief perform arrangements of virtuoso violin works including Sarasate's Ziguenerweisen Op. 20 along with other pieces across the classical spectrum. Craig's solo repertoire will include music by Scarlatti, Albeniz, Tarrega and Gary Ryan.

The Commander-in-Chief is a 24 year old Norwegian 7-string guitarist/singer/songwriter in metal, hard rock and classical music. An official Ibanez artist, she plays the prototype Falchion 7-string, the only one of its kind in the world. She is also endorsed by Laney Amps, EMG pickups, Audix microphones and Presonus. In December 2013 she released the first ever guitar recording of the classical violin piece Sarasate's Ziguenerweisen Op. 20. It was immediately featured in the world's biggest guitar magazine, Guitar World and in the prestigious Guitar Aficionado magazine, and was fourth on Guitar World's Top 10 Viral Videos of 2013 after just three weeks. It charted as No. 1 on the iTunes Classical chart in Norway and it also charted in the USA. It is a 'guitar duel' with a classical guitarist – the recording and video has had a very surprising crossover appeal and it is being praised from people who are into all kinds of music genres. She was a guest on BBC Radio, on Mike Read's show, where her version of Zigeunerweisen was played. The Chief was also featured on a major newspaper's front page in Norway (Bergens Tidende, BT).

Craig Ogden performs Boccherini and Vivaldi on August 8 and 11. See http://www.cerneabbasmusicfestival.co.uk/progs.htm for details

In 1991 proposed that an annual music festival be organised in the West Dorset village of Cerne Abbas (famed for the Cerne Abbas Giant), which is close to the family home of clarinettist Richard Hosford. The suggestion was taken up with enthusiasm in the village and the first Cerne Abbas Music Festival took place in July 1991. The primary focus of the programme was on chamber music by the classical composers, but also included twentieth century works.
The Festival has been extremely successful from its first year and is now the centrepiece of the Gaudier's calendar. Cerne Abbas is particularly proud of its association with the group. Members of the Ensemble stay in private houses in the village during the Festival week and the village church, St Mary's, is the venue for the concerts with stage and numbered seating arranged specially for the Festival.
This site brings together information about the Gaudier and the concerts and gives details of booking and membership of the Friends of the Festival.

Based on the writings of Juan Ramon Jiminez
As told by Mike Maran
Music by Mario Castelnuovo Tedesco
Performed by Craig Ogden
Puppetry by Nino Namitcheishvili
Spend a year in the sunshine of Southern Spain with a poet and his constant companion, a little silver donkey called Platero.

Once upon a time, a hundred years ago, in Moguer, a small whitewashed town near Seville, overlooking fields of vines, olives, pomegranates and the Rio Tinto, there lived a little silver donkey called Platero, and the Nobel Prize winning poet Juan Ramon Jimenez, who was born and grew up in the town. His best loved collection, Platero Y Yo (Platero & Me), paints an affectionate picture of Moguer and the timeless Andalusian landscape which influenced a whole generation of Spanish writers including Garcia Lorca.

In this delightful new stage adaptation Mike Maran once again teams up with Georgian director Levan Tsuladze and puppeteer Nino Namitcheishvili, following their record breaking collaboration with Captain Corelli’s Mandolin. Top-selling classical guitarist Craig Ogden will perform the musical score especially composed for the stories. The performance is directed by Levan Tsuladze.

All Saints Church

Sudborough: UK

With: Craig Ogden with Gerard McCrystal (saxophone)

The successful collaboration between Gerard McChrystal and Craig Ogden has seen them perform over 20 concerts to date, in a wide range of venues from The Wigmore Hall, London and St. David's Hall, Cardiff to the Sugar Club, Dublin. They have recorded two discs and broadcast on BBC and RTE. Their repertoire is influenced by jazz, Irish folk and South American music. Original works from Germany, Australia and Brazil give the programme a true international feel.

As the Belfast Telegraph wrote of their 2006 Festival recital:

Historically, the combination of guitar and saxophone is an unconventional mix, so it was refreshing, albeit unsurprising, that this concert's programme featured music written within the last decade. The compositions were modern and well-written but also melodic and accessible. Mid-morning magic! Belfast Telegraph 2006

Craig Ogden and Gerard McChrystal, set the thermometer high ....McChrystal's saxophone swings acrobatically from high octane celebration to sweet and low down melancholy in one and the same breath, wheedling more and more layers of complexity from Ogden's distilled guitar lines. Irish Times 2006

We were blown away almost literally by Gerard who, along with Craig and the music of Ciaran Farrell, got things off to such a wonderful start. Paul Herriot, RTE LyricFM, Blue of the Night Show live.

About this concert
This programme opens with the enchanting Oboe Quintet of Arnold Bax, with its delightful Irish feel and jig-like finale, one of several such works dedicated to Léon Goossens. Elgar’s salon music for violin provides a brief interlude before Warlock’s heart-rending The Curlew, Britten’s Songs from the Chinese and Vaughan Williams’s First String Quartet, written soon after his studies with Ravel in Paris.

About this concert
Lyricism lies at the heart of this early evening concert, placed there by an abundance of unforgettable tunes. This quality is infused in the colourful folksong settings of Britten and Malcolm Arnold’s ebullient Divertimento. It also rules the nature of Finzi’s Five Bagatelles and the folk-tinted character of Vaughan Williams’s Suite de Ballet of c.1913.

VIRTUOSITET OG HJERTEBLOD

Et program fuld af temaer: Nørgård bruger sine to temaer til gradvist at overblænde hinanden understøttet af den skønne mexicanske congas-rytme. Malcolm Arnold sender det ene tema efter det andet ud over os. Ind imellem får jeg associationer til al den fremragende filmmusik, han også har skrevet. Jeg glæder mig til at høre melodierne blive smukt leveret af guitaristen Craig Ogden. Tjajkovskij og hans Pathetique har de største og mest følelsesladede temaer, vi kan tænke os – nyd dem og ja, der må gerne knibes en tåre! Tjajkovskij døde ni dage efter uropførelsen af hans livs symfoni.

Craig Ogden: The Guitarist
12 October 2012


Award-winning classical guitarist Craig Ogden performs at The Chrysalis, following sell-out appearances at the Royal Albert Hall and Barbican. His first album for ‘Classic FM’, The Guitarist, sold over twenty-five thousand copies and went straight to number one
in the Classical Instrumental Bestsellers chart, along with his second album, Summertime.


Craig Ogden...

Australian-born Craig Ogden has proved his place in music as one of the world’s finest classical guitarists, possessing an unusual creative ability to push the boundaries of the classical music repertoire in order to reach out to a wide-ranging audience, without allowing artistic expression to be compromised in any way.

After playing in high-profile venues such as The Barbican and The Royal Albert Hall, Craig has now turned his attention to playing solo guitar in smaller venues and festivals. His interaction with the audience, relaxed style and communicative charm always guarantee audience enjoyment and appreciation of his music.

This one-off recital in Milton Keynes guarantees audiences will witness a world-class musician in a perfect blend of relaxed surroundings and The Chrysalis' acoustic perfection.

Craig will be playing and introducing selections from several of his solo albums: well-loved classics such as 'Recuerdos de la Alhambra' (Tarrega), preludes by Villa Lobos, Fernando Sor's 'Introduction, Theme and Variations on a theme from Mozart's opera The Magic Flute', and pieces from Elizabethan England (Dowland), early Italian sonatas (Scarlatti), a Bach lute suite, a waltz by Paraguayan composer Barrios, an Argentinean milonga by Piazzolla, a contemporary Balkan dance piece by Tadic, and one of Django Reinhardt's popular jazz-influenced pieces, 'Nuages'.

Wonderful, world-class musicians, giving their time for a wonderful cause.
This concert is organised by the MAE Foundation, which concentrates on taking musical instruments and music teaching to thousands of refugee children from Burma in the jungle refugee camps along the Thai border.
Since 2010, the charity has already delivered more than a thousand instruments and songbooks to children in the Mae La camp. The aim of this concert is to finance the second MAE Foundation songbook, to buy more instruments and to guarantee the rapid expansion of our provision of music teachers for these bright, enthusiastic children.
Despite the changes now taking place in Burma, the children in these camps -- more than 60,000 of them -- will still be living in temporary, leaf-roofed huts in the jungle for years to come. Support the MAE Foundation and enjoy a superb evening of exciting music, played by an extraordinary line-up of virtuoso musicians.

Currently, he is one of the most widely recorded guitarists and his Classic FM albums “The Guitarist” and “Summertime” both went straight to no.1 in the UK classical chart in 2010 and 2011. The BBC’s Music Magazine has dubbed Ogden “a worthy successor to Julian Bream”. Craig has performed with most of the major orchestras worldwide but also regularly appears as a soloist and chamber musician.

Richard Campbell is well known to Portaferry audiences as a church musician and has been Director of Music at several local churches including St. George’s Parish Belfast where he has been organist since 2004. He is a regular performer with the BBC appearing in both local and national radio broadcasts as well as on “Songs of Praise”.

Following a hugely popular debut solo album for Classic FM ('The Guitarist'), and with nominations within the Classical Brit Awards' "Album of the Year" category, Ogden's recital promises to offer something for everyone.

With popular favourites by Albéniz, substantial works of highly subtle intricacy by Dewar and Scarlatti, and a stunning arrangement of Arlen's timeless classic, 'Over the Rainbow', this is the quintessential recital for a summer's evening.

PROGRAMME
Eugène Bozza: Three Pieces
Joaquín Rodrigo: Serenade to the Dawn
Judith Weir: Gentle Violence
Peter Sculthorpe: From Kakadu
Joan Tower: Snow Dreams
Heitor Villa-Lobos: Distribution of Flowers
Elizabeth Brown: Antarctica
Michio Miyagi: The Sea in Spring
Michael Parkin: Elegy
Ástor Piazzolla: History of the Tango

ABOUT THE PROGRAMME
Expanding on the international theme of Concert XXI, this recital presents music from all seven continents. Europe is represented by Eugène Bozza (France), Joaquín Rodrigo (Spain) and Judith Weir (Scotland). The Weir is based on Tai Chi postures, and is for the unusual scoring guitar & piccolo. Distribution of Flowers by Brazilian Heitor Villa-Lobos is a short, poetic piece comprising a lyrical flute part accompanied by chordal guitar writing. The four movements of History of the Tango by Argentinian composer and bandoneón player Ástor Piazzolla contrast the styles of four historical periods of tango. Snow Dreams by New Yorker Joan Tower may suggest the many different forms of snow, though Tower feels that music should speak for itself and requires no description or explanation. From Kakadu for solo guitar by the Australian Peter Sculthorpe is an intimate work expressing the composer's deep contentment when visiting Kakadu National Park in northern Australia. The Sea in Spring – originally for koto and shakuhachi – is the most famous work by Japanese composer and koto player Michio Miyagi, and recalls his childhood memories of the sea, before he lost his eyesight. Michael Parkin's Elegy to the lost and disappearing tribes of Africa is based on a recording of African pygmy singing, the beauty of which so haunted him that he 'exorcised' his feelings by writing these variations on the vocal material, scored for solo alto flute. Elizabeth Brown's Antarctica for alto flute & prerecorded sounds chillingly conjures up the world of the frozen continent, and features idiomatic flute writing and atmospheric recorded material.

ABOUT THE PERFORMERS
Australian guitarist Craig Ogden studied at the University of Western Australia and the Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM). He was subsequently made a Fellow of the RNCM, and he is now Senior Lecturer in Guitar at the college. Craig's recital, radio and TV work have taken him all over the world, and his recordings for Virgin/EMI, Chandos, Nimbus, Hyperion, Naxos and Sony have been widely acclaimed. BBC Music Magazine described Ogden as 'a worthy successor to Julian Bream' and The Guardian called his playing 'brilliant and persuasive'. Craig has performed concertos with all the major London orchestras and a host of orchestras worldwide. He regularly appears as a soloist at the major London venues and UK festivals, and is much sought after for chamber music, having performed with the Brodsky Quartet, London Tango Quintet, Mark Padmore and Ian Bostridge. Many composers, including Mark Anthony Turnage, have written works for Craig. He also frequently records for film, and his playing featured in Notting Hill.

Hall Ogden Duo – Classic FM star returns to Roseland

Returning artists are a regular feature of Roseland Music Society concerts – they love coming back, and we love having them. Our March concert is an outstanding example of this phenomenon, when we welcome Graig Ogden, the internationally renowned Australian guitarist, along with his fellow Australian, flautist, Judith Hall. This will be Judith’s first visit to the Roseland, but it’s the third visit for Craig – he played for the society in November 2007, and for the Roseland Festival in November 2008.

Craig studied guitar from the age of seven and percussion from the age of thirteen. In 2004 he was honoured by the Royal Northern College of Music with a fellowship in recognition of his achievements, the youngest instrumentalist to have received this award from the RNCM. He appears regularly as soloist and chamber musician at the major London venues including the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Wigmore Hall and the Barbican, and collaborates regularly with many of the UK’s top artists and ensembles. Graig’s debut solo album for Classic FM, ‘The Guitarist’ went straight of number 1 in the classical charts,and his many film recordings include the British hit ‘Notting Hill’.

Judith was diverted from a non-musical career path by the renowned French flautist Jean-Pierre Rampal – he heard her play, and immediately suggested she become a professional musician. She studied with him briefly in France before moving to London. Her début in the Park Lane Group’s ‘Young Musicians and Twentieth Century Music’ series on the South Bank was very warmly received, and she immediately joined the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, as principal flute.

Graig and Judith formed their flute and guitar duo in 2002. As a duo they have toured extensively, both in the UK and internationally. Their Portscatho concert will feature works by a wide and exciting range of composers, including Ravel, Villa-Lobos, Rodrigo and Piazzolla.

Craig Ogden has proved his place in music as one of the world’s finest classical guitarists, possessing an unusual creative ability to push the boundaries of classical music repertoire in order to reach out to a wide-ranging audience, without allowing artistic expression to be compromised in any way.

He is currently enjoying his second number one album success. Summertime follows The Guitarist - which stayed at the coveted number one position for five weeks - into the top slot in the Classical Music charts.

After playing in high-profile venues such as The Barbican and The Royal Albert Hall, Craig has turned his attention to playing solo guitar in smaller venues. His interaction with the audience, relaxed style and communicative charm always guarantee audience enjoyment and appreciation of his music.

Craig’s solo repertoire includes pieces from both his current recordings - well-loved classics such as Sevilla by Isaac Albeniz, and the hugely popular film music Ashokan Farewell, to exquisite compositions from contemporary composers such as Callum Dewar and Gary Ryan.

Born and educated in Australia, Judith was involved in a different career when Jean-Pierre Rampal heard her play and suggested she become a professional musician. She studied with him briefly in France before moving to London. Her debut in the Park Lane Group's "Young Musicians and Twentieth Century Music" series on the South Bank was very warmly received, and she immediately joined the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, as Principal Flute. After seven years she left to give more time to solo and chamber music, having been launched as a winner in the ISM/Nat West Festival Days competition.

As a recital soloist she has played frequently in major British venues, with live BBC recordings from St David's Hall, Cardiff, the BBC Concert Hall and the Pump Room, Cheltenham. She has been heard in British festivals such as City of London, Three Choirs, Dartington, Newbury Spring Festival, Calstock, Budleigh Salterton, Salisbury International and Cheltenham International Festivals.

Between Judith Hall and Craig Ogden there is a natural affinity which makes their performances together quite exceptional. They have performed in Britain and as far afield as the Bahamas. Their programmes are lively and intriguing, mixing better-known music with contemporary and exotic pieces.

Australian-born guitarist Craig Ogden is one of the most exciting artists of his generation.

Craig Ogden performs as soloist and chamber musician all over the world.

For Equator’s first classical event we are delighted to present Australian-born guitarist Craig Ogden, one of the most exciting artists of his generation.
Among the UK’s most recorded guitarists, his recordings for Virgin/EMI, Chandos, Nimbus, Hyperion, Sony and Classic FM have received wide acclaim. Ogden’s Classic FM albums The Guitarist and Summertime both shot straight to no.1 in the UK classical chart in summer 2010 and 2011 respectively. Craig Ogden has performed concertos with all of the main UK orchestras plus many abroad in countries including Latvia, Russia, South Africa, Sweden and Australia. In season 2011/12 he returns to the Philharmonia Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra and Ulster Orchestra and will be playing with the WDR Rundfunk Orchestra in Köln the following season.

Craig Ogden regularly appears as soloist and chamber musician at the major London venues and collaborates regularly with many of the UK’s top artists and ensembles. In 2008 Craig Ogden made his presenting debut on BBC Radio 3 in ‘The Segovia Legacy’ co-presented by Louis de Bernières and in 2011 Ogden also presented a series of interviews with artists including John Williams for ABC Classic FM (Australia).

He studied guitar from the age of seven and percussion from the age of thirteen. In 2004 he became the youngest instrumentalist to have received a Fellowship Award from the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester. He is currently Principal Lecturer in Guitar at the Royal Northern College and Visiting Lecturer at London’s Royal College of Music.

In this concert there will be a special guest appearance by the Ashford Guitar Ensemble, following on from Craig’s afternoon master class at Ashford School with students drawn from several local schools.

With: Craig Ogden

Craig Ogden has proved his place in music as one of the world’s finest classical guitarists, possessing an unusual creative ability to push the boundaries of classical music repertoire in order to reach out to a wide-ranging audience, without allowing artistic expression to be compromised in any way.

He is currently enjoying his second number one album success. Summertime follows The Guitarist - which stayed at the coveted number one position for five weeks - into the top slot in the Classical Music charts.

After playing in high-profile venues such as The Barbican and The Royal Albert Hall, Craig has turned his attention to playing solo guitar in smaller venues. His interaction with the audience, relaxed style and communicative charm always guarantee audience enjoyment and appreciation of his music.

Craig’s solo repertoire includes pieces from both his current recordings - well-loved classics such as Sevilla by Isaac Albeniz, and the hugely popular film music Ashokan Farewell, to exquisite compositions from contemporary composers such as Callum Dewar and Gary Ryan.

From Spain we move to the States, featuring three central, yet distinctive, American composers of the 1930's. Barber is represented with his serenely beautiful Adagio; Ives by his existential The Unanswered Question; and Gershwin by his contemporarily urban An American in Paris, complete with car horns.

Craig Ogden, an outstanding guitarist, « a worthy successor to Julian Bream » according to the BBC Music Magazine, has released many recordings with great success. He has played for us twice before and we anticipate his return with pleasure.

Craig Ogden with Travis Finch (mandolin)

This concert was originally scheduled for Craig Ogden and Alison Stephens. Alison tragically died on 10th October 2010 and it is a fitting tribute to her that her foremost student, Travis Finch should replace her in this concert.
Australian born guitarist Craig Ogden is one of today’s most exciting artists. He studied guitar from the age of seven and percussion from the age of thirteen. Ogden was recently honoured by the Royal Northern College of Music with a Fellowship in recognition of his achievements, the youngest instrumentalist to have received this award. Craig’s most recent CD “The Guitarist” released in July 2010 by Classic fm, has proved a huge hit and has set him apart as the country’s most popular classical guitarist of his generation.

Originally from the United States, Travis Finch is Alison Stephens’ foremost student. He has participated in Master Classes with Israeli mandolinist Alon Sariel and Dutch mandolinist Sebastiaan De Grebber. Since his arrival in the UK in 2006 he has performed in venues around London and the South East, performed at the Barbican and broadcast on BBC Radio 3. He is the mandolin soloist for the Song of Japanese Autumn and Klezmer Suite and will also perform the duet "De Aires Antiguos" with Emily O'Hara

Eduardo Portal conductor
Craig Ogden guitar

Manuel de Falla took such fastidious care with all his music that those works he did finish are all exquisitely crafted gems, each encapsulating something utterly in tune with Spanish culture. His exotic collection of seven retouched traditional Spanish melodies and his flamenco inspired ballet score The Three-Cornered Hat and the guitar concerto by Rodrigo – still the most popular ever written – are conducted here by a young Spaniard who has made quite an impression on concert-goers in the last two years, Eduardo Portal. He finishes with Mussorgsky’s celebrated set of pictures in music – a touching walk past etchings and sketches by Victor Hartmann infused with the orchestral colour and power of Maurice Ravel.

Titania, Queen of the Fairies, awakes, realising that she has been humiliated by her husband, Oberon. She begins to sing her spellbinding lament… and opera steps down from the stage and into the room with you.

Titania’s Dream is part of Leeds’ annual Light Night festival, when arts across the city turn up in surprising ways and unexpected locations. The aria at the heart of this newly created live performance installation, ‘O Let Me Weep,’ is taken from Henry Purcell’s opera, The Fairy Queen, which was based on Shakespeare’s popular comedy A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Titania’s Dream marks an exciting and immersive approach to experiencing opera, using elements of live performance, projection and sound recording to create a walk- through installation which will be open free to the public for Light Night. Whether you stay for five minutes or five hours, wander in and fall under the forest’s spell…
