Redmond O’Toole: Eight String Guitar

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’.

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 program 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”.
