ENGLISH MUSIC FESTIVAL
Let’sstart on a good “note”. The 10th anniversary of the English Music Festival will be held at Dorchesteron-thames, Oxfordshire, from 26th to 30th May. Em Marshall-luck is to be congratulated on her continued pursuit of fine unusual English melody.
World premieres this year include Norfolk March by David Matthews, An Optimistic Overture by Paul Lewis, and part of The Fat Knight by Vaughan Williams, an extract from an opera originally named Sir John in Love.
