Lincolnshire International Chamber Music Festival

Lincolnshire International Chamber Music Festival
After a year's silence the Lincolnshire International Chamber Music Festival is back with five days of concerts (13-17 July 2021) across Lincolnshire, curated by pianist and composer Alissa Firsova and with tenor Mark Padmore as artist in residence. The festival opens at Doddington Hall and then travels to Grimsby Minster, All Saints Church, Gainsborough, Centenary Methodist Church, Boston, and the County Assembly Rooms, Lincoln.

Firsova's theme for the festival is Love and Loss with Mark Padmore and guitarist Morgan Szymanski performing music from the 17th to the 21st centuries, the Navarra String Quartet in Puccini, Kurtág, Janáček and Schubert, Alissa Firsova and Mark Padmore in Schumann, Brahms and Britten, the Britten Sinfonia in Mozart, Beethoven and Jon Paul Mayse, Alissa Firsova and cellist Yoanna Prodanova in music by Stravinsky, Rachmaninov and Firsova's father, the late Dmitri Smirnov.

The festival was founded in 2005 under artistic director Graham Oppenheimer, and Lincolnshire-born pianist Ashley Wass took over as artistic director in 2007 and Matthew Trusler joined as co-artistic director in 2017. Alissa Firsova's first festival was in 2019 and her 2020 festival had been planned to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the voyage of the Mayflower.
