With a series of albums that have topped the UK Classical charts, Australian guitarist Craig Ogden is an eloquent ambassador for his instrument, and he won many friends when stepping in at short notice for Miloš Karadaglic two seasons ago. Now back with the Manchester Camerata he brings a collection of old and new works, showcasing the guitar’s versatility and his effortless virtuosity. Albeniz’s exotic Asturias and Giuliani’s elegant Guitar Concerto rub shoulders with Göran Sollscher’s dextrous arrangement of Here comes the sun, and Einaudi’s hauntingly beautiful Due tramonti. Tears will be no doubt be jerked in Samuel Barber’s heartfelt Adagio and the house will probably be brought down when Luigi Boccherini’s Fandango struts its exuberant stuff. There’s much more besides to enjoy, so whether you’re a fan of the classical guitar or a newcomer to its delights, this is one for your must-see list.

Pre-concert talk, 6.20pm in the auditorium: Craig Ogden in conversation
