The Ensemble Moliere concert on Saturday 28th April brings our 2017/18 season to a close. It has been a particularly good year, with the outstanding musicianship of young performers Convivio and Masumi Yamamoto and Boris Bizjak providing particularly memorable highlights. We will certainly hope to bring them back in future seasons.
Plans for our next season have been developing since January, and are now largely finalised. We are pleased that there will be a mixture of old friends returning (including Duo Dorado playing a Bach programme, and Steven Devine and Kate Semmens – who will be bringing a fortepiano with them!), as well as exciting younger performers we are keen to hear. We have again been fortunate in linking up with the Royal College of Music to bring a quartet of their former students to play for us next October.
Full details of the new season will be announced in late June, with tickets going on sale through the Dartington Box Office and website from the start of July. In the meantime, we can look forward to enjoying the delights of the Summer School programme at Dartington, with some wonderful music and musicians scheduled to appear. How lucky we are to have this wonderful place “just down the road”!
