Australian born Craig Ogden is one of the most exciting and recorded guitarists of his generation. He has a huge following and is one of Classic FM’s most played artists. He is Head of Guitar at RNCM and Visiting Lecturer at London’s Royal College of Music. For his second visit to Ilkley he is joined by Serbian-born classical accordionist, Miloš Milivojević. An ambassador for the classical accordion, Miloš is widely known for his versatility in different genres, including classical, tango and world music, which has ensured he is in international demand.

They play a programme which ranges from the baroque to the modern and geographically from Argentina and Paraguay to the Czech Republic and Soviet Russia. As well as hearing both our players as soloists. we shall enjoy works both arranged and written for the unusual combination of guitar and accordion

“A worthy successor to Julian Bream.” BBC MUSIC MAGAZINE [Ogden]
