This year the festival returns with an exciting program, focused on celebrating larger and smaller ensemble sizes, moving away from the standard string quartet formation to include string sextets and quintets, as well as the more unusual string trio/duo formations.
The first of the three concerts champions the smaller possible string mediums: as well as Bartok duos and Martinu Madrigals for string duo, the concert also includes solo cello and a string trio. As the festival progresses more and more players are added until on the final day there are six players on stage, exploring some of the best music Brahms and Tchaikovsky ever wrote for strings.
Taking place once again at the newly renovated Wheal Martyn Museum near St Austell, the venue provides a beautiful, intimate setting in which to play and listen to these works.
Join us from 25th-27th August for what promises to be a joyful 3 days of music making in a beautiful location near St Austell!
