Sacconi Festival

We’ve got lots on offer!:
– The WORLD PREMIERE of a new piece for Tenor and String Quartet by composer Jonathan Dove, performed by the Sacconis and Mark Padmore. This new commission ‘In Damascus’ tells the story of one man’s harrowing experiences of daily life in a war-torn country.
– Our Sunday afternoon concert will see no less than ten violists, including the eminent Roger Chase, take to the stage in various formations to perform an English programme including Bridge and Ireland
– Pianist Charles Owen returns to the Festival to play Jonathan Dove’s Piano Quintet with the Sacconis, and guitarist Morgan Szymanski plays a late-night programme of Latin and British music
– Plus HaydnMendelssohn and Mozart Quartets, Elgar’s Serenade for Strings, Mozart’s Violin Concerto in A major and the Brahms Sextet
