Fire, Passion and Fantasy with Craig Ogden<br>
De Falla, Ritual Fire Dance
Rodrigo, Guitar Concerto (Concierto de Aranjuez)
Ravel, Mother Goose (Full Ballet)
Guitar: Craig Ogden
Conductor: Jason Thornton
De Falla's Ritual Fire Dance describes a young gypsy girl's frenzied dance with the ghost of her dead husband. Transcending time and place, and inspired by the gardens at Palacio Real de Aranjuez, Rodrigo's Concierto de Aranjuez is full of evocative Iberian melodies and imbued with the natural world. In writing Mother Goose, Ravel introduces fairy tale characters and colourful orchestrations in the most wonderful and sophisticated manner.
We are thrilled to be joined by Australian born guitarist Craig Ogden, one of the most exciting artists of his generation.
