Hebden Bridge Arts Festival 2009

York Guitar Quartet

St Michael’s Church,
8pm to 10.00pm
£8 (£6) £2 under 17s

The York Guitar Quartet was formed in 1983, and since then they have toured extensively, performing at Arts Centres, festivals and many other venues around the country. Its members are professional performers and teachers who pride themselves on a unique repertoire, believing that the classical guitar can do so much more than the familiar Spanish-flavoured repertoire.

Their own compositions feature African influences, contemporary musical styles such as minimalism, and even rock and jazz. They have also commissioned some fine new works from other composers. While trying to push back the barriers of classical guitar music, they also take their responsibilities to their audiences seriously, and choose pieces that are exciting, beautiful and accessible.
