Concert at York University

Centred around music by Christian Mason and Tanya Tagaq from their recently released album Songbooks Vol. 1, Ligeti Quartet explores the sonic possibilities of string techniques inspired by throat singing traditions from around the world. York composers, past and present, make up the rest of the programme, taking inspiration from howling dogs, and the entire history of the string quartet itself.

This is an online concert from the Jack Lyons Concert Hall, University of York.

A Child's Christmas in Wales, and other stories

With narrator Matthew Bulgo

A festive fairytale treat for all the family, A Child’s Christmas in Wales chronicles Dylan Thomas's own childhood memories and remains one of his most popular and loved works.

In this wonderful adaptation for strings, step into December days ‘as white as Lapland’, where mischief is easily found, snowballs are hurled, and the curious grownups are shrewdly observed.
