Lewes Chamber Music Festival

Lewes Chamber Music Festival 2022
Celebrating its tenth anniversary this year, the Lewes Chamber Music Festival brings together a group of musicians to perform chamber music at a variety of venues in Lewes over a weekend, this year from 9 to 11 June 2022. 

For its artists, the festival brings together a mixture of professional musicians, those at the start of their career, and several who may still be studying, and this year's line up is Beatrice Philips - violin and Artistic Director, Bengt Forsberg - piano, Adam Newman - viola, Alasdair Beatson - piano, Bogdan Božović - violin, Amy Norrington - cello, Lilli Maijala - viola, Vashti Hunter - cello, Tim Crawford - violin, Hannah Sloane - cello, Matt Hunt - clarinet, Mary Bevan - soprano, Hannah Shaw - viola, Venetia Jollands - violin, and the Eusebius Quartet. 

And the programme mixes the well-known and the lesser known so that alongside Elgar's Quartet and Piano Quintet there is Enescu's Octet and his Toccata from his Suite, plus Beethoven, Schubert including the Notturno, Quintet in C major, Brahms' Clarinet Quintet, and Fauré alongside music by Chausson, Lili Boulanger, Zemlinsky, Berg, Bliss, Kate Whitley and Jorg Widmann. And lots else besides.
