ABOUT Craig Ogden
Described by BBC Music Magazine as "a worthy successor to Julian Bream," Australian born guitarist Craig Ogden is one of the most exciting artists of his generation. Craig studied guitar from the age of seven and percussion from the age of thirteen. In 2004, he became the youngest instrumentalist to receive a Fellowship Award from the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester.
One of the UK's most recorded guitarists, Craig has accumulated an acclaimed discography for Chandos, Virgin/EMI, Nimbus, Hyperion, and Sony, as well as six chart-topping albums for Classic FM. His most recent recordings are a solo recital disc for Chandos, Craig Ogden in Concert, and a new arrangement of the Goldberg Variations by J.S. Bach, with violinist David Juritz and cellist Tim Hugh, for Nimbus Records.
Ogden has performed concertos with many of the world's leading orchestras in countries including Latvia, Russia, South Africa, Denmark, Spain, Sweden, Germany, and Australia.
