A message from the Festival's Artistic Director
It gives us great pleasure to welcome you back to the Hatfield House Chamber Music Festival 2013.
Thanks to your continued support and the generous spirit of The Marquess of Salisbury we are able to launch our second festival in the glorious and inspiring settings of Hatfield House. We are delighted that the inaugural festival was such a success and hope it will continue to grow into the future.
Please join me in welcoming our musicians in residence who are looking forward to sharing these wonderful programmes with you. The Aronowitz Ensemble and Navara Quartet will be returning along with many other notable musicians including BBC New Generation Artist soprano Ruby Hughes and rising fortepianist Kristian Bezuidenhout.
Highlights include Mendelssohn's famous Octet on the opening night as well as works by Mozart, Schubert, Brahms, Strauss, Fauré, Bridge, and Britten during the course of the weekend. The finale will be quite a tour de force; the musicians in residence having played in different combinations throughout the weekend will join together in the Hatfield House Festival Chamber Orchestra. We are honoured to have violinist Anthony Marwood and violist Lawrence Power who will be playing Mozart's sublime Sinfonia Concertante to round off this year's festival. You are in for a treat!
We do hope that you enjoy your experiences here at the Hatfield House Chamber Music Festival. If you haven't done so already, please do become a friend of the festival. Without you, none of this would be possible.
