Classical guitar meets a full Symphony Orchestra


The Lismore Symphony Orchestra has announced that local classical guitarist, Matthew Marshall, will soon be bringing a new dimension to the orchestra’s soundscape.

Matthew, described as ‘”a guitarist of superb technical accomplishment and a musician of perception and style” will perform the complete guitar concerto of Joaquin Rodrigo’s “Concierto de Aranjuez”. This orchestral masterpiece blends Spanish classical guitar with a full symphony orchestra – a rare feat in music and it has arguably made this work one of the most famous 20th century orchestral compositions.
