Two of the world's leading guitarists, Gary Ryan and Craig Ogden, perform music spanning centuries and continents with sparkling and imaginative arrangements that breathe new life into familiar repertoire. 


Their programme includes arrangements of Vivaldi's much-loved Concerto in D (RV93) for mandolin, strings and continuo and Rossini's Overture to the Barber of Seville. Solos include transcriptions of Bach's Suite No. 1 in G major (BWV 1007) for cello and Ryan's beautiful folk tune arrangements such as Banaha (Congolese), The Ash Grove (Welsh) and El Testament d'Amelia (Catalan). Two dances from The Three Cornered Hat by Manuel de Falla bring out the bright and brilliant flamenco and folk rhythms of the guitar with colours and textures that feel as if they have seeped out of the landscape of the Iberian peninsula.
