Redmond O'Toole

 
Redmond O'Toole

Through his unorthodox playing style and committed musicianship, the Irish musician Redmond O'Toole has emerged as one of the most innovative and exciting young guitarists in Europe. O'Toole was the first guitarist in the world to adapt to Paul Galbraith's new groundbreaking technique and instrument: he plays the 8-string 'Brahms guitar' in the cello position connected to a special resonating box. The additional range of the guitar allows an expansion of the repertoire as well as incorporating original music for classical guitar. RTE Lyric Fm will release his debut CD in early 2006.

The Irish Times: "O'Toole's recital was absorbing, partly because of the instrument, but above all because of the player's natural artistry".
