30 July - 3 August

This year Dillington will be celebrating twenty three years of their Classical Guitar Festival. The music of Spain and Latin America will feature throughout the week with concerts by some of today’s leading international ensembles and soloists. 2017 sees guitar virtuoso Graham Devine make his Festival debut with a programme including works by Bach, Tarrega and Albeniz. The brilliant Copenhagen Guitar duo (Allan Sjolin and Martin Buono) will also be making their first appearance at Dillington with a programme which includes works by Scarlatti, Albeniz and Piazzolla, as well as music by Danish composers Anders Koppel & Martin Lohse. On the Monday evening there will be a special programme celebrating five centuries of Spanish guitar music and on the Wednesday the music of Spain and South America will feature. Throughout the week audiences will be treated to solos, duos and trios and on the final
night the fabulous Vida Quartet make a long overdue return visit to Dillington with works by Bach, Villa Lobos and Vaughan Williams.
