Oscar Ghiglia and Chloë Hanslip Perform at Music Network Artist Residency Series

Curated by Artist in Residence Redmond O'Toole, the concerts will take place on 23 and 24 October.

The Music Network Artist Residency, a new initiative in partnership with the National Opera House and Wexford County Council, continues its curated concerts this October with performances by Oscar Ghiglia and Chloë Hanslip.

The series, curated by Artist in Residence guitarist Redmond O’Toole, has previously featured performances from Sinéad Campbell-Wallace; Zoë Conway and John McIntyre with Shaháb and Sháyán Coohe; and the Wexford Sinfonia with RTÉ ConTempo Quartet.  

Italian guitarist Oscar Ghiglia will give his Irish debut on 23 October as part of the series in a concert featuring music by Fernando Sor, Frank Martin and Manuel Ponce. A former teacher of O’Toole, Ghiglia will also present a masterclass for young Irish guitar players. Ghiglia previously studied with Andrés Segovia.

On 24 October, O’Toole will be joined by violinist Chloë Hanslip in a performance of Italian, Spanish and Argentinian works, plus a short work by Northern Irish composer Ian Wilson, Spilliaert’s Beach.

Hanslip played Ireland last year with pianist Danny Driver on a 9-date Music Network tour.  The duo have just released Beethoven: Violin Sonatas Vol. 1 on the Rubicon label.

Next month, 18 November, the series will feature the International Guitar Quartet, composed of O’Toole with Adam Levin (USA), Derek Gripper (South Africa) and Rosa Maria Robinson (Mexico).

All concerts take place at the National Opera House in Wexford. For more information, visit https://goo.gl/gNbVNq.
