The Sacconi String Quartet along with renowned clarinettist Robert Plane will perform the following programme:
Mozart; String Quartet in D K499 Hofmeister
York Bowen; Phantasy Quartet for bass clarinet and strings
Brahms: Clarinet Quintet Op 115
Concert-goers may recall that, after their performance in 2014, particularly of Beethoven's Op 132 Quartet, reviewer Tim Robinson wrote, "At the end of the third movement there was a silence so profound, so intense, so visceral, that few in the chancel of Ripon Cathedral will forget it. Time stood still."
This is the launch concert of a series of six in the new season. The Cathedral Concert Society's website (http://www.riponconcerts.co.uk) has details of where to obtain tickets for this event and information on how to become a Member which gives access to all six concerts. If you have never previously been to a concert in Ripon Cathedral I would urge you to give it a go. It is a really brilliant venue.
