Thank you for a great season
Our 2015 season is now over. Thank you for supporting Late Music this year, and for your feedback which helps us to plan for the future. If you missed any of our concerts, or if you want to listen again, we will continue to add selected recordings to Soundcloud. Just click on the ‘Listen now’ button above.
And now for 2016
In addition to our First Saturday concerts (March to October) and series of occasional Lunchtime recitals, we will start with a preview event on 27th February in partnership with York Literature Festival. The focus of the day’s events will be ‘British Song Now’ and will feature the poetry of Lemn Sissay set to music by Samantha Fernando. They will discuss their collaboration in a pre-evening concert talk.
On May 7th we will hold a day’s events to celebrate the 70th birthday of Michael Finnissy, who we have commissioned to write a new work. Michael will also give the pre-concert talk.
Other concerts include the Dr. K Sextet, the Albany Trio, the Late Music Ensemble, Sadie Harrison with Cuatro Puntos, the Ebor Singers and, in our closing concert on 1st October, the farewell concert by the legendary Fitzwilliam Quartet.
On 17th April we will be holding an extra partnership concert with (and at) the National Centre for Early Music, featuring Hildur Guðnadóttir, Icelandic cellist, composer, singer and software manipulator.
We promise many new works (and some older ones), beauty, challenge, some laughter, a few tears and a free glass of wine if you come to our pre-concert talks!
We look forward to seeing you,
Steve, Judith, Peter, David and James
