PURBECK INTERNATIONAL CHAMBER MUSIC FESTIVAL

PURBECK INTERNATIONAL CHAMBER MUSIC FESTIVAL

30 August - 2 September

2018 is set to be the biggest year yet for Purbeck International Chamber Music Festival. The idea of journeying and a sense of coming home has inspired our artistic director Natalie Clein and this year’s programming. The Festival begins with one of the most intense and moving of all musical journeys, Schubert’s
Winterreise. Programme highlights will include the beauty of Mahler’s Wayfarer songs in the chamber music version arranged by Schoenberg, the joyous Beethoven Septet and the all-time favourite chamber music piece
of many, Schubert’s A major piano quintet ‘The Trout’. Interspersed throughout the festival, Syrian Oud player and singer Ibrahim Keivo will bring his unique voice and soul to the programmes. He will be joined by historian Philip Mansel who will give a lecture on Aleppo. The Festival marks the 70th birthday of a highly respected British composer Brian Elias with a new commission and screening of premier of the film made by Barrie Gavin about Brian’s life and work. The spoken word is also an important part of the Festival and we have actor Rory Kinnear joining us this year.
