RODRIGO'S CONCIERTO D'ARANJUEZ - ELY SINFONIA WITH GUEST CRAIG OGDEN

30 September 2017 7:30pm

Rodrigo Concierto de Aranjuez
Beethoven Symphony no.2
Craig Ogden Guitar
Steve Bingham Conductor

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.

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.

Tonight's exciting programme 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.
