“Excellent music-making you wished could have lasted longer.” The Age
“So engrossing was the performance, and so smooth the progression between movements that the work seemed to end far too quickly.” Artshub
Described by Gramophone as “superb” and “a thoughtful musician of considerable taste and technical prowess”, Christoph Denoth is one of the world’s finest guitarists, renowned for his peerless musicality and expressive sensitivity.
In his Australian debut, Christoph joins MCO for a passionate celebration of life, love, music and dance through music of Spain and Italy, including Vivaldi’s much-loved Guitar Concerto and music of Albéniz, Boccherini & Granados. Full of regional colour, infectious rhythms, soaring melodies and heartfelt serenades, this is music to lift the spirits and transport you through time and place.
