Australian born guitarist Craig Ogden is one of the most exciting artists of his generation.
Craig Ogden has performed concertos with many of the world’s leading orchestras. In recent seasons he has performed with the Hallé, BBC Concert Orchestra, Orquesta Sinfónica de Navarra (Spain), Spanish Symphony Orchestra, RTÉ Concert Orchestra (Dublin), London Philharmonic, Ulster Orchestra, Orchestra of Opera North and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic. In 2015, Craig was asked at short notice to step in for the indisposed Miloš Karadaglić to perform a series of concerts with the Royal Northern Sinfonia at major UK concert halls and again in 2016 with the Royal Northern Sinfonia and the English Chamber Orchestra, both tours receiving critical acclaim. This season Craig performs concertos with orchestras including the Hallé, London Mozart Players, Manchester Camerata, English String Orchestra and the Darwin Symphony Orchestra, Australia. Craig enjoys performing new works for guitar and gave the world premiere of a concerto written for him by Andy Scott with the Northern Chamber Orchestra in Manchester in November 2017, followed by the Australian premiere in Perth in September 2018. He gave the world premiere of ‘Il Filo’, a double concerto for guitar and accordion by David Gordon with Miloš Milivojević in summer 2019 and composer David Knotts is currently writing a concerto for Craig.
