Guitars for St Cecilia's
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Gordon Ferries presents a new, mainly solo programme inspired by compositions of the early nineteenth-century Hungarian guitar virtuoso, Johann Kaspar Mertz. This elegant recital is designed to demonstrate the predominantly Romantic, pianistic influences found in Mertz's work, and to explore the repertoire of duos which Mertz wrote for the specific combination of terz guitar and standard guitar. In the duo section, Gordon Ferries will be joined by special guest artist, Stephen Morrison. Both players will perform on period instruments. 'Ferries' playing is subtle, rich and probing' (Independent).
