Late Music concerts return to York in February – with music by living composers alongside greats from Bach to the Pet Shop Boys.
The brand new season features 14 concerts and runs up until June – and kicks off this Friday 2 February with a piano recital from David Hammond centred on the work of ambient music composer Erik Satie.
The work of Erik Satie can also be heard with the Lapins Trio (Saturday 4 May) and the season’s finale (Saturday 1 June) with the Late Music Ensemble, which celebrates the 99th anniversary of Satie’s death.
The Elysian Singers (Saturday 2 March) will also be making a much anticipated return, including a world premiere and Late Music commission by minimalist British composer Gavin Bryars, most famous for his 1972 composition Jesus’ Blood Never Failed Me Yet.
The new season will also present not one, but two violin concerts. The first (Saturday 3 February), sees Steve Bingham chart an eclectic journey through the repertoire including Bach, Piazzolla and the Pet Shop Boys.
Savva Zverev makes his Late Music debut alongside Sid Ramachander (Saturday 6 April), including Arvo Pärt’s seminal work Spiegel im Spiegel alongside Bartók, Lutosławski and Webern.
