Ryedale Festival Launch Concert
Friday 16 March 2018
Pickering Parish Church, YO18 7BE
Mendelssohn – String Quartet in E minor (op. 44, no. 2)
Webern – Langsamer Satz
Beethoven – String Quartet in F major (op. 59, no. 1)
The Ryedale Festival season opens with music of deep happiness: the high spirits of a quartet Mendelssohn composed shortly after the birth of his first child, followed by the lush romanticism of a magical early piece by Webern, conceived during a country walk with his lover and breathing an air of contentment and oneness with nature. The outstanding Arod Quartet then turn to the first of Beethoven’s famous Razumovsky quartets, an epic work famous for the solemn grandeur of its slow movement which Beethoven called ‘a weeping willow or acacia tree on my brother’s grave’.
After the concert, the festival’s Artistic Director Christopher Glynn will introduce the programme for the 2018 Ryedale Festival
This is one of 3 events forming the Ryedale Festival Spring Weekend 2018
