Eki Attar, from Tuvan Songbook
Events for this work
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.
To kick off their 10th anniversary year, Ligeti Quartet take a snapshot tour of music by some of the most exciting and genre-defying composers working today in the UK and around the world.
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.
