Craig will be stepping in to help out the Aquarelle Guitar Quartet at their concert in Manchester’s The Stoller Hall this evening.
One of the Aquarelle Guitar Quartet members (Vasilis) has just had a baby in Greece with his Greek partner (congratulations!) and Vasilis is therefore unable to do the concert this evening, so the Quartet have asked Craig to fill in at very short notice. Craig has spent a day busily trying to learn all of Vasilis’s parts – 90 minutes of music!
This evening’s concert is connected to the 50th anniversary celebrations at Chetham’s School of Music. All of the AGQ members were students of Craig’s at the RNCM – Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester and he also helped to introduce them to Chandos Records for whom they have released 4 or 5 CDs. Craig is extremely excited about having the chance to play in the quartet. They are four of the best guitarists he’s taught and their ensemble is incredibly tight.
