Oxford Chamber Music Festival 2018

Join the philosopher and gardener Jeremy Naydler, whose books include Gardening as a sacred art and a collection of poetry, Soul gardening, in the inspiring surroundings of Worton Organic Farm, near Cassington. His pre-concert talk will be a celebration of the earth, and will include images and poetry. Into the Ether The fifth element is the ether, the realm of the spirit, which can only be perceived by hearing. Kodaly’s sizzling duo sets fire to Hungarian earth; Mansurian’s haunting Lachrymae waters it with Armenian tears. Granados’s gorgeous bird calls through the night air to a young Spanish girl, and Bruch’s Octet displays all the melodic gift of his famous violin concerto, with a virtuoso first violin ending our Festival in the highest of spirits. Granados  The Maiden and the Nightingale  arr.Beamish| Kodály Duo for violin and cello | Tigran Mansurian Lachrymae | Bruch String octet op. Post.

Price includes talk, concert, bocconcini and wine.
