Guitar aficionados will be in for a treat at one of Richard Durrant's multimedia shows, which offer audience members a real musical treat.

Mr Durrant's show, entitled the Ghost Whisperer, sees the guitar maestro entertain the crowd with his radical interpretations of classical music, often against backdrops of specially commissioned short films, making this more than just a concert but a piece of theatre.

Spokesman Jim Soars told the Crawley Observer that the show took a colourful look at the guitar in "a piece of beautifully-presented musical theatre".

He said: "Each performance takes the classical instrument as its starting point, but then, from the relative safety of familiar, virtuoso repertoire, the audience is taken on a journey into an astounding, sensory world."

Mr Soars added that the show is attracting an ever-growing number of fans of classical music and those who usually listened to other styles of music.

Some of the highlights of the show include a performance of Debussy's Arabesque No 1, which is played to an impressionistic film made with paint, sand and oil, and a performance on a 19th century Lacote guitar.

Rene Lacote was a renowned Parisian guitar maker.
