|West Cork Chamber Music Festival|
'There's something to be said about chamber music played in a real chamber. A chamber, in fact, that was already elderly when most of the music was written ... The chamber, in actuality, the library of the elegant Bantry House was the setting, and the entirety was magnificent.' - Kelly Ferjutz at the 2007 West Cork Chamber Music Festival

|O beata Trinitas: Renaissance music for Father, Son and Holy Ghost|
David Allinson, conductor
A central tenet of Christian belief is that there is one creator, who is simultaneously Father, Son and Holy Ghost — the formulation so familiar from the Creed, and in countless prayers, that it may pass almost without a thought. The mysterious and frequently-misunderstood concept is celebrated on Trinity Sunday, one of the few major feasts in the calendar that celebrates a doctrine rather than an event or individual. In music, the concept became linked with the harmony of the major triad.
Join us for this programme of sublime mass music and motets in honour of the Trinity written during the Renaissance period, by composers from England (Tallis, Sheppard, Byrd), the low countries (Josquin, de Rore), Italy (Palestrina) and Iberia and the New World (Guerrero, Victoria, Lopez Castillas).

|Spoleto Festival dei Due Mondi|
Spoleto's 'Festival of the Two Worlds', an annual international music, art and culture event, was founded in 1958 by Italian composer Gian Carlo Menotti. Menotti was artistic director of the festival until the mid-1990s, when he handed over the reigns to his adopted son, Francis Menotti. But as soon as Gian Carlo Menotti died in 2007, there were various legal wrangles about the festival's future, and Francis eventually had to give up attempting to reclaim it from a group of people including Italian film and theatre director Giorgio Ferrara, who was assigned as the new artistic director by the Italian government.

|25 July 2019 until 28 August 2019|
When Richard Wagner sketched his ideas for a festival in 1850, his initial thoughts were of a venue in Zurich or Weimar, and later Munich. Twenty years later Hans Richter drew him to a vacant opera house in the city of Bayreuth. Wagner liked the city, but the building was unsuitable for performances of The Ring. It took until 13 August 1876, when a new opera house had finally been built, for the first Bayreuth Festival to begin.
In 2019 there will be performances of Tannhäuser, Lohengrin, Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg, Parsifal and Tristan und Isolde.
|20 July 2019 until 31 August 2019|
|Salzburg Summer Festival|
The opening premiere will be Mozart's Idomeneo. Here, the ruler - torn between duty to the gods and love for his family - is forced to deliberate and take action. This contrasts with the awareness lacked by the title character of George Enescu's opera Oedipe: he becomes guilty without fault. Family conflicts and political disputes also appear in the gripping plot of Verdi's Simon Boccanegra, a work which recalls the fateful intricacies familiar to us from the great mythic tales of humanity's ancient past.
|6 July 2019 until 1 September 2019|
|Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival|
A classical music festival held each summer throughout the state of Schleswig-Holstein in Northern Germany, founded in 1986 by German concert pianist Justus Frantz. Janine Jansen is artist-in-residence, and the 2019 composer retrospective is Johann Sebastian Bach.
