Won­der­ful fort­night of mu­sic on of­fer

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - ON SHOW -

THE jam-packed pro­gramme for a fes­ti­val prom­ises to en­thral clas­si­cal and con­tem­po­rary mu­sic fans alike.

The 55th Lit­tle Mis­senden Fes­ti­val runs from Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 3 to Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 12. It will in­clude pieces by Beethoven and Bach as well as re­cent com­posers such as Sean Clancy.

Or­gan­iser Lucy Bro­gan says: “This year’s big­gest event is cen­tred on a com­plete per­for­mance of Stravin­sky’s Sol­dier’s Tale.

“Com­ple­ment­ing the theme of a Sol­dier’s Tale, the fes­ti­val will mark the cen­te­nary of the out­break of the First World War with a pro­gramme mainly ded­i­cated to the songs and po­etry of sol­dier poet and com­poser Ivor Gur­ney, in­ter­spersed with songs by Schu­bert, Schu­mann, Vaughan Wil­liams and Finzi.”

Pavel Kolesnikov, who has just been named a Ra­dio Three New mu­sic, clas­sics or rar­i­ties, there is some­thing for you. We look for­ward to a won­der­ful fort­night.”

Most of the events will take place in the vil­lage church of St John the Bap­tist.

More in­for­ma­tion and a full pro­gramme is avail­able at www.lit­tle-mis­senden.org.
