Redmond O’Toole

Irish Classical guitarist Redmond O’Toole has been hailed as one of the most interesting players of his generation, renowned for his atmospheric performances and dazzling virtuosity. 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’. This evening’s programme exploits the full range of his unusual 8-string guitar and “cello” style technique; beginning with transcriptions of J.S. Bach and Haydn before visiting Mexico and Spain for the music of Rodrigo and Ponce and ending with Carlo Domeniconi’s masterwork “Koyunbaba”.
