The festival opens on Wednesday 3 October 2018 with Charles Owen and Katya Apekisheva, both solo and as a duo, in Schubert, Granados, Ginastera, Ravel, Debussy and Milhaud. Subsequent recitals will include Konstantin Lifschitz in Schubert, Janacek and Debussy, jazz pianist Leszek Możdżer, a lecture/recital on Debussy from Paul Roberts and a performance of The Nutcracker and I by Alexandra Dariescu.
