Somewhere for the weekend - Lewes Chamber Music Festival

Lewes Chamber Music Festival
The Lewes Chamber Music Festival starts today (27 June) and runs until 29 June. This is the third year of the festival, under artistic director Beatrice Philips, and more than 20 artists are performing across Lewes in a festival which combines music with food and drink. 

The festival opens with Haydn, Taneyev and Beethoven played by an amazing line up of ten different artists (not all at once) .The late night concert tonight, which features the Brahms Clarinet Quintet is preceded by a pop-up restaurant provided by Local Sauce chef Sheba Anvari. Tomorrow lunchtime, members of the Celan Quartet and clarinettist Matt Hunt perform Mozart's own arrangement of his B flat violin sonata. Tomorrow evening, Kate Whitley's Piece for Piano, Clarinet and String Trio receives its world premiere along with music by Mozart, Beethoven and Taneyev. Sunday's concerts continue with events morning, afternoon and night, featuring music by Schoenberg, Mozart, Ravel, Stravinsky, Scriabin and Catoire.
