For over seventy years, the writer, oboist, musicologist and university lecturer John Warrack has been at the heart of British musical life. He has also been, for 17 years, President of the Ryedale Festival, which now celebrates his 90th year with this special concert, for which he has chosen and will introduce the programme. As the acclaimed biographer of Weber and Tchaikovsky, he shares his enthusiasm for some of their most lyrical and evocative songs. Music by his father and eponymous grandfather will also be heard, and the concert ends with the collection of lyrical masterpieces that Schumann described as ‘my most romantic music ever’.
