Forgotten Voices at Purbeck International Chamber Music Festival

Forgotten Voices - Purbeck International Chamber Music Festival

Cellist Natalie Clein's Purbeck International Chamber Music Festival returns performances in historic locations in Dorset and the Isle of Purbeck from 7 to 10 September 2023. This year's festival features Natalie Clein, cello, Kate Royal, soprano, Danel Quartet, Nurit Stark, violin, Marianna Shirinyan, piano, Vivi Lachs, singer & author, Katharina Ziemke, painter in festival that has a strong folk influence, exploring different strands within classical and folk musics, under the title of Forgotten Voices.

The festival opens with a concert which pairs quartets by Schubert and Weinberg from the Danel Quartet with duos for violin and cello by Gliere and Kurtag from Natalie Clein and Nurit Stark, and this is followed by a programme of music by women composers including songs by Madeleine Dring from soprano Kate Royal, Henriette Bosman's cello sonata with Natalie Clein, and music by Clara Schumann and Amy Beach. 

An evening of duos and trios features Yiddish folk song alongside Bartok's folk-inspired duos, whilst another programme mixes song from Kate Royal and Yiddish popular song from singer Vivi Lachs. And the Bartok duos return in a family concert presented in association with the Swanage Folk Festival.

The final concert sees the Danel Quartet return with another Weinberg Quartet, plus music by Schulhof and Dick Kattenburg.
