East Neuk Festival

Classical, jazz, world music and al fresco art on the Fife coast, in quirky, atmospheric and special venues, from churches, halls, an ex-nuclear bunker, caves, an RAF base and a Scout hut to stately homes and gardens ...

The heart of the ENF is intimate chamber music, but the festival is eclectic: world, jazz, folk, contemporary, early, choral and electronica all have their places. ENF has also commissioned films, exhibitions, public art and installations and literature events.

'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

Inspired by the traditional 'grand tour' made by young British aristocrats from the seventeenth century onwards, Londinium embarks on an intrepid journey around some of Europe's foremost musical centres. Our route follows a typical grand tourist's itinerary: after leaving London for Paris, we make a perilous Alpine crossing to explore the treasures of Italy, before returning home by way of Vienna.

On our travels we encounter a dazzling array of repertoire - everything from the polyphony of Renaissance Rome to the polychoral splendour of Venice, the Neapolitan Baroque, echoes of Wagner's 'Tristan', the seductive soundworld of fin-de-si&engrave;cle Vienna, the sophistication of Debussy, and the music of our own time. Particular highlights include Clytus Gottwald's sumptuous transcriptions of Wagner and Mahler, Judith Bingham's bewitching 'Gleams of a Remoter World', the UK première of Matthew Recio's 'How to Survive Vesuvius', and - marking the quincentenary of the death of its protagonist - Eric Whitacre's hugely entertaining 'Leonardo Dreams of His Flying Machine'.

O beata Trinitas: Renaissance music for Father, Son and Holy Ghost

Renaissance Singers
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.
