A theme of the Festival is the music of Arvo Pärt, an inspiration to Kaupo Kikkas and our photographic exhibition. Pärt’s 'Speigel im Speigel' will be played by Mathieu Herzog, distinguished violist and former member of the Quattuor Ebene, making his first visit to the Festival. We are equally delighted to welcome back our Australian guests, the Goldner String Quartet, Paul Dean and Trish O’Brein. The Goldners frame the programme in quartets by two of the greatest masters of the genre, Beethoven and Shostakovich. Paul Dean takes the lead in the remaining works by York Bowen and Schumann.
