Triple Concert

An event unique to the Ryedale Festival, the Triple Concert features three contrasting concerts in different parts of Castle Howard, each performed three times, with the audiences changing places between performances.

Long Gallery:

Strauss (arr. Hasenöhrl) - Till Eulenspiegel einmal anders!
Samuel Coleridge-Taylor – Nonet in F minor

The music of Coleridge-Taylor combines warmth, lyricism and an exploration of his African heritage. One of his most irresistible works is played here by an ensemble that has won wide praise, both for the quality of its performances and its ground-breaking work to bring more opportunities to young black and minority ethnic musicians.

Clare Wilkinson (mezzo-soprano)

Byrd - Where the blind and wonton boy
Byrd - Browning
Debussy – The girl with the flaxen hair
Orlando Gibbons - In Nomine
Orlando Gibbons - O Lord in thy wrath
Hugo Wolf – On an old picture
Purcell - Fantasy in four parts
Purcell - Music for a while
Purcell - Fantazia No. 8
Tan Dun – A Sinking Love
Michael Nyman – If

For over 30 years, Fretwork have maintained a reputation as the world’s leading consort of viols. Their musical adventure is reflected in this programme, as they are joined by the singer Clare Wilkinson to perform music from over 500 years, from Elizabethan England to the present day.

‘Fretwork is the finest viol consort on the planet’ - Evening Standard

Great Hall:
Albion Quartet

Beethoven – Quartet no. 10 in E flat major (op. 74) The Harp

One of Beethoven’s most serenely beautiful works, the Harp quartet takes its name from the effect of plucked strings in the opening movement and is full of warmth, playfulness and contentment.
