Tetbury Music Festival – 2005

Even before the ink was dry on the glowing comments
we received about the second Tetbury Music Festival last
October, Graham Kean and Steven Isserlis were discussing
the programme and performers for the 2005 Festival.

This has now been finalised, and we are very pleased
to be able to tell you what you can look forward to during
the weekend of 6-9 October.

You will see that this year there is to be a Thursday
concert as well, and one that we are particularly proud to
have as part of the Festival. You will recall that last
year Mark Padmore was unable to come. He wants very much to do the two cantatas planned for last year, and when he was discussing the Sunday concert with Graham, Mark said that he would like to do something else in the Festival – the Schubert song cycle, Winterreise.

We are thrilled to be able to include this in the Festival.

Steven Isserlis is not playing this year – he will be
abroad on tour. He will return in 2006, and his plans for
that Festival are already taking shape.
