Product Description

CD Description

Australian-born guitarist Craig Ogden is one of the world’s finest classical guitarists. He’s become known as the Classical Jack Johnson through his laid back, effortless, naturally brilliant approach to playing guitar. His new album The Guitarist, has been dubbed 'summer in a CD' by Classic FM.

The album comprises brand new arrangements of the most voted for Classic FM tracks, as featured in their ‘Hall of Fame’. Beautiful interpretations of much-loved piano pieces, bringing his own unique sound to some of the most popular and loved tunes, include "Ashokan Farewell", "Clair de Lune", the "Moonlight Sonata", "Canon in D" to name but a few, as well as a number of brand new compositions.

Craig Ogden studied guitar from the age of seven and percussion from the age of thirteen and in 2004 he was honoured by the Royal Northern College of Music with a Fellowship in recognition of his achievements. He is the youngest instrumentalist to have received this award from the RNCM.

He regularly appears as soloist and chamber musician at the major London venues including the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Wigmore Hall and the Barbican and collaborates regularly with many of the UK's top artists and ensembles.

Craig Ogden is Principal Lecturer in Guitar at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester.

5.0 out of 5 stars Musical confetti 23 Aug 2010
Format:Audio CD
A stunning album and wonderful arrangements, what a joy. As someone who plays the piano, (badly I admit, I blame the varifocals) to hear arrangements of some of my favorite classical piano pieces arranged for the guitar is like hearing the music played for the very first time. A brilliant album (I cannot wait for the next one) by a great guitarist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful album! 7 July 2010
Format:Audio CD
I love this album. It has a lovely mix of recognisable pieces and I listened to it a few times over when I first got it - it's mellow and relaxing and perfect for the summer. I am going to get several copies to give as gifts as I have a few family birthdays over the summer.

Don't miss out!!

5.0 out of 5 stars He knows how to pull a few strings 20 Aug 2010
Format:Audio CD
As soon as you press the play button the music envelops you.The mix is a pleasant combination of well known tunes and relaxing melodies perfectly executed and with the accompliment of other instruments skillfully harmonised with the guitar.
Just play it when at the computer or working around the house and time will fly by.
Well worth getting and you don't get tired of letting it play over and over in the player especially in the car when stuck in traffic.

5.0 out of 5 stars so so relaxing 21 Aug 2010
Format:Audio CD
This has to be the most relaxing collection of music that I have heard in a long time. If you need to unwind after a stressful day then this is the music for you.Craig Ogden has managed to craft some simple pieces of music and make them magical. Everyone has become a firm favourite but the best has to be track 12 simple Serenade.

5.0 out of 5 stars A triumph! 11 July 2010
By Debbs
Format:Audio CD
This album is a delight from start to finish. Ogden's tone, interpretation and track selection are spot on.

It is always refreshing to see a guitar album with accessible, enjoyable pieces and the works presented here are no exception. Rondo Rodeo is a personal favourite, as is the arrangement of Hallelujah. As a guitarist myself, I have long admired Ogden's work, and this is an album I am delighted to add to my collection and will enjoy for many years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Craig Ogden - The Guitarist 22 Aug 2010
By Folkie
Format:Audio CD
If classical guitar music is your thing then this is a must have. I have played it many times at work and it has finally found it's way home. Some of the music is to listen to and some to sing along with, if you know the words, or you can just hum. It's also good for relaxing and shutting your eyes for a few minutes - not at work though!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Guitarist 20 Aug 2010
By L. Bell
Format:Audio CD
I kept hearing adverts for this cd on Classic FM and it sounded really enjoyable. I read the reviews that had already been posted and they sounded really positive, so I bought it. I was not disappointed, it is excellent and a really good mix of tunes, some of which have been arranged for the guitar.
