I am delighted to announce that the programme for 2017 will celebrate the music of J S Bach and Robert Schumann. In addition to hearing some of these composers’ most brilliant works for keyboard and small ensemble, there will also be arrangements of Bach by Max Reger for piano four hands, pieces by Clara Schumann, the Brahms Horn Trio and Romancendres by Heinz Holliger, which was inspired by Schumann.

Performing these works is a team of some of the most stunningly brilliant musicians I know, coming together in Leicester for a whole week in order to concentrate on music at its best for an audience they love.
