English Haydn festival

Internationally recognised musicians contribute to Bridgnorth’s 24th annual English Haydn Festival, taking place between 7 and 11 June. This year’s theme is Haydn Across the Years, demonstrating Joseph Haydn’s influence on musical form from the classical period to the present day, with orchestral performances of his symphonies.

A highlight will be the world premiere of a quartet composition by Shropshire composer Luke Bedford, performed by the Salomon Quartet. The Festival includes lunchtime and evening string quartet concerts, with the Quatuor Mosaiques, plus piano and wind ensembles featuring the Florilegium Quintet and the Festival Wind Band. The Sunday choral concert is Michael Haydn’s ‘Requiem’, with soloists Miranda Westcott, Daniel Norman and Andrew Slater, supported by the Haydn Festival Chorus conducted by John Moore.
