Tuesday 18 July 2017
Sledmere House And Church, Sledmere, YO25 3XH
This is one of 57 events forming the Ryedale Festival.

Starts 7:00pm

Double Concert I
Sledmere House and Church are the venues for two short concerts, both performed twice, the audience changing places either side of a picnic interval.

Carducci Quartet

Philip Glass – String Quartet no. 3 Mishima
Dvorák – String Quartet no. 12 The American

The joyful string quartet that Dvorák composed while enjoying the contentment of a family holiday in Iowa – inspired by its natural beauty and weaving in the folk melodies he heard there – has become one of the most celebrated of all his works. The Carducci Quartet preface it with another celebrated American work – an adaptation of music originally composed for the film Mishima, where Philip Glass uses a string quartet to evoke the atmosphere of a wistful, carefree childhood.


Antidotum Arachne Palisander

Hannah Fisher, Lydia Gosnell, Miriam Nerval, Caoimhe de Paor (recorders)
Toby Carr (guitar and lute)

Kircher – antidotum
Merula – Canzon ‘La Lusignola’
Vivaldi – Concerto (RV 439) The Nightmare
Trad. – Tarantellas I
Dowland – Lachrimae pavane
Byrd – In Fields abroad
Dowland – The Frog Galliard
Koomans – The Jogger
Trad. – Tarantellas II

16th and 17th-century victims of venomous spider bites were offered no medicinal cure or relief. Instead, local musicians would work together to find the correct melody, known as a ‘tarantella’, which could cure them of their otherwise fatal symptoms. The acclaimed recorder consort Palisander explore a victim’s ordeal, and the symptoms and side effects of a tarantula’s bite, in an entrancing programme of music and magic.
The grounds of Sledmere will be open from 5.30pm for concertgoers and there will be a further picnic opportunity during the 45 minute interval between performances when drinks will also be available.
