Virtuoso Irish classical guitarist Redmond O’Toole performs at the Linenhall Arts Centre in Castlebar on Thursday April 12 at 8pm.
O’Toole has been hailed as one of the most interesting players of his generation, renowned for his atmospheric performances and dazzling technique. He has given recitals throughout Europe and the US at prestigious concert halls and festivals as soloist, as well as with The Chieftains and Dublin Guitar Quartet.
After a number of recent collaborations with acclaimed artists including Derek Gripper (South Africa ), Chloe Hanslip (UK ), and The International Guitar Quartet, he returns to solo concerts this spring.
The programme exploits the full range of his unusual eight-string guitar and ‘cello style’ technique, beginning with transcriptions of JS Bach and Haydn before visiting Mexico and Spain for the music of Rodrigo and Ponce and ending with Carlo Domeniconi’s masterwork 'Koyunbaba'. A real treat for music lovers.
