The Tetbury Music Festival 2013
Thursday 3th October -
Sunday 6th October 2013
Our opening concert by the brilliant ensemble
Arcangelo and Kristian Bezuidenhout includes a recreation
of the first performance of the Beethoven 4th Piano Concerto, with single strings,
as well as one of Mozart's loveliest piano concerti and an intriguing work by one
of his major contemporaries, who was highly respected by Mozart.
The Kelemen String Quartet
, the prize-winning quartet from Hungary brings us the
first concert in our series to cover the string quartets of Bartok.
Sarah Connolly (mezzo-soprano) is accompanied by
Joseph Middleton, a rising
force in lieder accompaniment and a local Gloucestershire boy.
The two Ste/ph/vens (Isserlis and Hough) have performed and recorded together
often, and we are privileged to have them in Tetbury. As our founding Artistic
Adviser, Steven has played at the Tetbury Music Festival four times, and we are
delighted to welcome Stephen in his debut at the Festival. The programme
includes the UK premiere of new work for Cello & Piano by Stephen Hough,
jointly commissioned for the Tetbury Festival and the Kronberg Festival.
The closing concert is the first of five David Thomas Memorial Concerts
planned over the next five years. The series will present at Tetbury great
masterworks of 18th century religious music, under the
sponsorship of the David Thomas Trust. This year it is the Bach B minor Mass; a
chamber scale performance of the greatest mass in the repertoire.
Last year some of the concerts were
sell-outs before the event, so you might want
to take advantage of priority booking
by becoming a Dolphin.
We look forward to seeing you later this year.
