World premiere of guitar concerto
Craig will be appearing with the Northern Chamber Orchestra to play a concert featuring two guitar concertos at The Stoller Hall, Manchester’s newest and most exciting venue on 3 November at 7.30pm.
Craig will perform the Rodrigo Concierto de Aranjuez, and the world premiere of Andy Scott’s concerto written specifically for Craig.
Tippett Concerto for Double String Orchestra
Rodrigo Concierto de Aranjuez
Andy Scott Guitar Concerto – World Premiere
Mozart Symphony No 31 ‘Paris’
The concert opens with a chance to see the result of the NCO’s partnership with Chetham’s as some of the school’s young string players sit side-by-side with the professional players. Together they form the orchestra in a performance of Tippett’s Concerto for Double String Orchestra, conducted by Stephen Threlfall. Completing the programme is one of the grandest and most beautifully crafted symphonies that Mozart ever wrote – his Paris Symphony.
