Heath Quartet 2 wwThe Ryedale Festival introduces its 2016 season to York audiences with a Double Concert in York’s two great medieval halls. Two short contrasting concerts are performed twice; the audiences will change places either side of the interval.

In the Merchant Adventurers’ Hall the Heath Quartet evoke the world of War and Peace with Tchaikovsky’s noble and lyrical First String Quartet – its slow movement based on a Ukrainian folksong that famously moved Leo Tolstoy to tears.

Catrin Finch 1 wwIn contrast, the Merchant Taylors’ Hall (this year celebrating its 600th anniversary) is the setting for an irresistible recital by one of the country’s leading musicians, Catrin Finch, known as ‘The Queen of Harps’, and former Royal Harpist to HRH The Prince of Wales.
