Breaking Barriers In The Early Baroque
Friday 27 April 2018
St Helen Stonegate, York YO1 8QN
Musicke in the Ayre return to St Helen with their ever-popular programme built around rarely-heard pieces for 3 sopranos from 17th century Italy and France. Special even when first performed, many of these were written for what was probably the first professional all-women ensembles; some were actually written by the even rarer breed of women composers. This music marked a major milestone in the emergence of women as serious composers and performers. Sopranos Helen Atkinson, Carmel Edwards, Marie Lemaire will be accompanied by Din Ghani on archlute and baroque guitar.
Performance between 1.00 and 2.00pm; Entry is free, with an retiring collection.

York Guildhall Orchestra - Shostakovich, Tchaikovs
Saturday 19 May 2018
York Barbican Centre
It will be a privilege to welcome this young man to play the Tchaikovsky concerto with us - he is a fabulous player and we are delighted to have secured his appearance and introduce him to a York audience. The Tchaikovsky is a well-known stalwart of the violin concerto repertoire, but be assured, Jack will bring his own fresh interpretation. The Shostakovich is a favourite of the orchestra - great fun to play with splendid tunes. To finish the concert, we will perform Berlioz's semi-autobiographical programme work, the Symphonie Fantastique - which explores the tribulations of a young musician hopelessly in love.
The full programme is:
Shostakovich - Festive Overture
Tchaikovsky - Violin Concerto No.1
Berlioz - Symphonie Fantastique
♫ Live Music at the Black Swan Folk Club
♫ Concerts at the University of York
