Midwinter Festival

The 2018 Midwinter Festival will follow on from the PRODIGY theme of last January’s festival to focus on music composed by composers in love.

Music by the great Romantics Brahms, Wagner and Schumann (Robert and Clara), along with other musical love letters by Beethoven, Schubert, Janácek, Britten and Schoenberg, will move us all with their ardent expressions of love. The BELOVED festival will also feature an afternoon recital of popular love-inspired arias and duos from the world of opera.
