After the visit of Steven Isserlis last year the 2019 festival brings to York another world renown musician, clarinettist Emma Johnson. Our core players return, equally all-stars of chamber music in their own right.
The six concerts are all designed to play masterpieces of chamber music; three of Mozart’s greatest late works and sonatas and quartets by the three ‘Bs’ - Bach, Beethoven and Brahms. And we continue our exploration from last year of Mendelssohn’s chamber music and of the pre-First World War pastoral gems by Frank Bridge.
A connoisseur’s theme is that the voice of the viola is prominent throughout thanks largely to both Mozart and Bridge being expert players and writing lovely parts for themselves! Welcome back Sarah-Jane Bradley to fill this role! Welcome to you all.
Why not take advantage of our ‘all concerts’ £50 ticket? And see also the £1 offer to all of you under 18. Truly bargains!
