The Maids
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
Square Peg Theatre Company presents this radical new telling of Jean Genet's seminal play.

Deeply resentful of their social position, Solange and Claire plot to kill their beloved Madame, creating a fantastical world of revenge and sadomasochism that drives them to the brink of madness and murder.

Using Square Peg’s deft physical style, the audience are propelled by a whirlwind of shifting perspectives to expose the paradox that we are all trapped by our freedom.

A classic example of French absurdism, The Maids remains as chilling and relevant as ever.

Wyrd Sisters
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
RADS present an adaptation of Terry Pratchett's best-selling work.

Running from Thu 28th - Sat 30th July and Thu 4th - Sat 6th August.

Terry Pratchett takes Shakespeare's Macbeth and then turns it up 'till the knob comes off. It's all there - a wicked duke and duchess, the ghost of the murdered king, dim soldiers, strolling players, a land in peril. And who stands between the Kingdom and destruction? Three witches. Granny Weatherwax (intolerant, self-opinionated, powerful), Nanny Ogg (down-to-earth, vulgar) and Magrat Garlick (naïve, fond of occult jewellery and bunnies).

If you love Discworld, you'll love this; if you've never heard of Discworld, you'll still love it. If you love Shakespeare, prepare to be affronted...!

"The duke had a mind that ticked like a clock and, like a clock, it regularly went cuckoo."

Dvořák Nocturne for String Orchestra

​Vivaldi The Four Seasons (David Greed, violin)

The Cleveland Chamber Orchestra is always a popular visitor to our concerts, and with a programme like tonight's that's not surprising. The leader of the Opera North Orchestra, David Greed, takes the baton for the first half, with two gorgeous and familiar works for string orchestra. After the interval, he reappears as the violin soloist in Vivaldi's famous Four Seasons, one of the best-selling classical recordings ever. This quartet of miniature concertos ends with a bright and chilly invocation of Winter - just the thing for a December evening!

Frith Piano Quartet
Venue: Influence Church, Victoria Road
Time: 19:30
Return visit by a high-quality chamber ensemble

Schubert Piano Quintet in A major, 'The Trout'
Mozart Piano Quartet No. 1 in G minor K478
----------
Vaughan Williams Piano Quintet in C minor

We haven't had a visit from the full Frith Quartet since 2009, and it's good to welcome them back. This time the group is accompanied by John Tattersdill (double-bassist for the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra). In Schubert's Trout the unusual instrumentation brings an added richness to this sunny, attractive work, and allows the cello to be more playful than is usual. Vaughan Williams chose the same un-familiar lineup for his own Brahmsian Piano Quintet. In between the two quintets is Mozart's K478, widely held to be the first major piano quartet in the chamber music repertoire, and considered exceptionally difficult when it was published. Fortunately that shouldn't be a problem for tonight's pianist, the excellent Benjamin Frith.

Prize-winning string quartet.

Haydn String Quartet Op. 20, No. 2
Joseph Phibbs String Quartet No. 1
----------
​Beethoven String Quartet No. 13, Op. 130 (with the Grosse Fuge)

This prize-winning quartet impressed us on a previous visit to Richmond. Now they're back, with a Haydn opener, then a work by the young British composer Joseph Phibbs, commissioned by the Piatti Quartet, funded by the Britten–Pears Foundation and the Vaughan Williams Trust, and praised by the Sunday Times as "exhilarating... [a] combination of vibrancy and rigour".

After the interval comes a real monster: Beethoven's Op. 130 Quartet - one of his celebrated 'Late Quartets' - in six movements, ending with the optional, mighty Grosse Fuge.

Carducci Quartet
Venue: Influence Church, Victoria Road
Time: 19:30
The Carducci are always a huge hit with our audiences - superb musicians, and one of the finest string quartets around.

Haydn String Quartet Op. 20, No. 4
Glass String Quartet No. 2
Shostakovich String Quartet No. 11
----------
Webern Langsamer Satz
Beethoven String Quartet Op. 95

How many times have we had the Carducci Quartet? We think this must be their sixth visit to Richmond, and they are always a huge hit with our audiences. Superb musicians, personable, with an exceptional rapport, they are one of the finest string quartets around.

Tonight the Carduccis perform a generously proportioned concert. It includes a much-loved Haydn piece, one of the very first 'modern' string quartets, and Webern's highly charged Langsamer Satz, described as a "little masterpiece". Composed in 1905, Langsamer Satz was never publicly performed - astonishingly - until 1962, just a few years before Shostakovich's very different, very intense Quartet No. 11. The piece by Philip Glass is a companion to his Third Quartet, which the Carduccis performed in Richmond a few years ago, and which gave our audience such pleasure.

What a wonderful close to the 2016-17 Richmondshire Concerts season.
