The Tetbury Music Festival – 2006

The programme is now finalised, and we are very pleased
to be able to let you know what you can look forward to during
the weekend of 5-8 October.

You will see that this year there will again be a Thursday
concert, reflecting the growth of the Festival. This opening concert is
a performance of Rachmaninov’s Vespers with Bath Camerata conducted by
Nigel Perrin.

As promised, Steven Isserlis will again be performing with friends
at this year’s festival, in not one but two concerts on Friday and
Saturday evening.

As is becoming usual we have a premier during the festival, this year
it is the UK premier of Fruhling’s Fantasy as part of the concert on
Saturday morning.

The final concert is of works by Johann Kuhnau and his successor in
Leipzig, J S Bach, including Bach’s Lutheran Mass in G. The soloists are
Emma Kirkby, Robin Blaze, Charles Daniels and Peter Harvey with the
King’s Consort directed by Robert King.

We hope you will all find things that you will enjoy in this
