ABOUT

About Carlos Bonell

“A player of superb poetic gifts”

New York Times

Carlos started to play guitar at the age of five. He completed his studies at the Royal College of Music with John Williams and was appointed the youngest ever professor at the age of 22.

 

He has recorded more than twenty albums and played in forty countries, with concert appearances ranging from intimate recitals to concertos with symphony orchestras.

Carlos’ interest in bringing the classical guitar into the mainstream led in 2008 to his album release Queen Guitar Rhapsodies, in concerto-style arrangements of music by the group Queen for solo guitar and symphony orchestra. It was widely praised, including by Queen’s Brian May who described it as “Absolutely exquisite”.

His album Magical Mystery Guitar Tour, inspired by his association with Sir Paul McCartney is dedicated to the music of the Beatles in Carlos’ own arrangements for solo guitar. It went to number one on the UK iTunes classical album charts in May 2012.

In 2018 Carlos spent time in the studio recording music for the UK TV series Endeavour (the young Inspector Morse). Carlos also recorded the guitar music and theme with orchestra for the original Inspector Morse series – 30 years ago!

Concert will take place Saturday 1st June, from 7:30pm, doors opening at 6:45pm.

Half of the profits from this concert will be donated for the benefit of Lady St Mary Church
