Oscar Ghiglia

Monday 23 October

Music Network Artist Residency in partnership with The National Opera House and Wexford County Council

Former assistant to Andres Segovia, Oscar Ghiglia has had a profound influence on the classical guitar both as a performer and teacher. He makes his Irish concert debut at the National Opera House. A monument of experience and musicality he has worked with some of the most important composers of the twentieth century such as Joaquin Rodrigo, Manuel Ponce and Mario Castlenuovo Tedesco. He continues Segovia's teaching legacy at l'Acaddemia Chigiana in Siena and counts many of today's leading guitarists among his students. In addition to his concert he will present a master-class with some of Ireland's most talented guitar students.
