Reviews and Feedback on Schubert Fest 2014

Our second Festival is over: a wonderful four nights of Schubert!
– plus a unique lunchtime concert of exciting improvisation, together with students of Derwen College.

While we prepare for Mendelssohn 2015, these pages go into suspended animation.  But make sure the dates are in your diary

May 12-17 2015

and in the meantime enjoy an eight-minute reminiscence of our Schubert
(and don’t forget 2013’s Brahms on the right!).
