Music of Britain – a week of the best of british

After Beethoven in the Borders (“You could fairly call it an intense experience… the concerts were packed out, and the performances stunning” – Music Critic Michael White),  a Fantasia of British music has been fashioned for this May by the inclusion of no less than fifteen composers, three of them women.

The six-day festival includes works from Dowland to the present day, with particular contributions in the WW1 centenary year from Elgar and Vaughan Williams. There’s a nod too in one of the concerts to the British folk music tradition from which such composers drew inspiration.

Now in its sixth year, Whittington Music Festival again attracts fifteen world-class musicians, including the Elias Quartet.
