Interval

Dvorak - Symphony No. 7

RICHARD DURRANT is as comfortable performing the classical guitar at the Royal Albert Hall as he is giving a Ukulele concert in the wilds of South America or the smallest, English village hall. He has performed the Aranjuez concerto with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and recorded his own The Girl at the Airport with the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. He has also toured over 3,000 miles with his one-man show, Cycling Music, pedalling the entire production from gig to gig on the back of his bike. Richard’s adventures have allowed him to dip in and out of the spheres of classical, folk, world and jazz. His honesty and passion for music pervades everything he chooses to do and audi­ences across the world are charmed by his spirit. He is currently writing a Ukulele concerto (Six Grooves for Ukulele) and has just launched his own online academy, The Richard Durrant Academy, specialising in guitar and ukulele tuition.

Richard is pleased to step in for this concert at short notice. He will be performing the Aranjuez later in the year with the Paraguayan national orchestra to celebrate their 60th anniver­sary.
