  1. String Quartet in B flat, 'Sunrise' Op 76 No 4 - (Franz) Joseph Haydn
  2. New work for flute and string trio - Judith Weir
  3. Masks Op 3 - Oliver Knussen
  4. Quintet for piano and strings in A Op 81 - Antonín Dvorák

The Nash Ensemble make a hugely welcome return for the opening concert of the 2019 Festival, presenting a programme of joyful contrasts. The exquisite Sunrise, from Haydn’s last set of quartets, paves the way for the world premiere of a work for flute and string trio by Master of the Queen’s Music, Judith Weir. This marks the first of more than 20 major premieres at this year’s Festival. Oliver Knussen’s long and fruitful relationship with the Festival is remembered with his beguiling solo flute work, and the concert concludes with the second quintet of Anton Dvorák, widely considered a masterpiece of the form.
