Video pick of the Week: Vida Guitar Quartet Play Vaughan Williams’ ‘English Folk Song Suite’

To take you into the weekend and beyond, here’s Britain’s exceptional Vida Guitar Quartet performing (Ralph) Vaughan Williams’ English Folk Song Suite, one of many works the noted composer (1972-1958) based on folk tunes of his native England. The Suite, here captured live at King’s Place in London in 2015, appears on Vida’s most recent CD, The Leaves Be Green, which is entirely devoted to works by British composers. Keep an eye out for the Winter 2016 issue of Classical Guitar, out in November, which features an illuminating interview with the foursome: Amanda Cook, Chris Stell, Mark Eden, and Mark Ashford.
