and Ely Sinfonia
Australian-born guitarist Craig Ogden is one of the most electrifying classical guitar players of his generation. His albums frequently top the UK Classical Chart and composers are lining up to write music especially for him.
On September 30th 2017, he joins Ely Sinfonia in Ely Cathedral to play what is arguably the most famous guitar concerto of all time, Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez. 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 de Aranjuez heads up an exciting programme, conducted by Steve Bingham, 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.
Tickets cost £25, £20, £15 (reserved) and £8.50 (unreserved). Concessions are £15 in £20 seats.
