Ryedale Festival Launch Concert
Friday 16 March 2018
Pickering Parish Church, YO18 7BE
Arod Quartet

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

Hailed as ‘the new face of classical guitar’ after winning every major international guitar competition within the space of just a few months, 23-year-old Thibaut Garcia has had the critics reaching for new superlatives, as well as comparisons with the great guitarists of the past. Described as a young Frenchman with an old Spanish soul, his passionate and charismatic playing has resulted in sold-out tours across North and South America, which he now follows with a performance at the Ryedale Festival. His programme ranges from Bach to Piazolla and draws inspiration from many cultures. ‘I wanted it to be full of energy, sun, emotion and tenderness’, he writes, ‘evoking places in which I have travelled extensively – from Seville and Granada to Buenos Aires, by way of the Basque country and the Asturias. It enables me to bring a personal character to each piece, as if every page were part of my travel diary.’
