Due to public health concerns, live events have been cancelled all across the world.

In fact, the entire 2020 concert season for the Melbourne Guitar Festival is now shut down.

The Melbourne Guitar Festival is my only income, as my wife Amy is not working due to our 7 month old baby.

Our year has been thrown into financial disarray.

Many artists and event organisers will now be out of work for an unknown period of time.

If you wish to purchase a ticket to view the this exclusive digital concert, please know that you will be greatly helping support the artists involved and also my work with the Melbourne Guitar Festival.

Thank you for your support and understanding during these difficult times.

Absolutely amazing … [he] mesmerised the audience with his playing. Everyone listened in awe during his Concerto de Aranjuez and the olés and standing ovation were well deserved.”
– Lynn Mills, of Harold’s performance at the Canberra Symphony Orchestra Proms concert.

Classical guitarist Harold Gretton brings a diverse mix of masterpieces to life with an interpretive approach founded as much on raw passion as on thorough research. Not only interested in discovering new repertoire, he is equally at home rediscovering older classics. His unique vision is enriched by historical information in all of the virtuoso works he performs.

This program begins with a Fugue and Passacaglia by Silvius Leopold Weiss, one of the most important and prolific composers of lute music in history.

The beautiful lyricism of Paraguayan Augustin Barrios follows, with his Julia Florida, paired with the vibrant virtuosity of his Waltz No 4.

The highly-evocative Cloudforms by much-loved composer Richard Charlton and Harold Gretton’s five movement “Flock” features, before ending with 5 favourite Latin classics with melodies to sing long after the concert finishes.
