Welcome to the 2014 Late Music Concerts

We are launching the 2014 season with a pre-season free event - an ambisonic sound installation, followed by an evening concert by the University of York Gamelan Orchestra.

Starting on March 1st we have a concert of two halves. The first half will celebrate the music of Gavin Bryars, including a new Late Music commission and featuring members of his ensemble with Gavin on piano. The second half will be a performance of Craig Vear’s composition Three Last Letters for three male voices, bass clarinet, cello, electric guitar and a digital soundscape. Be prepared for an emotional evening.

We will maintain this high standard with celebrations of Richard Rodney Bennett, Michael Nyman (including a Late Music commission), the late Steve Martland and Kerry Andrew (performed by the Ebor Singers), all of which will be performed by ensembles new to Late Music.

In fact our only returning artist is Ian Pace, who follows up his sensational Rzewski concert with more virtuoso piano repertoire.

Happy significant birthdays to Michael Nyman, Jeremy Dale Roberts and Roger Marsh.

Peter Boardman
