Now celebrating its 25th anniversary, the much loved and internationally renowned Peasmarsh Chamber Music Festival returns this summer, treating audiences to a magical long weekend of concerts by world class artists, performed in beautiful historic churches and including masterpieces of the chamber music repertoire both new and old.

Our 25th anniversary Festival begins with some wonderful celebratory music – Boccherini’s upbeat and energising quintet in E major was written in 1771 and includes his famous Minuet, while Britten’s first published String Quartet was composed in the summer of 1941 as Britten stayed with friends in Escondido, California and first performed in Los Angeles. Meanwhile, contemporary composer Robin Ireland celebrates the viola at its most virtuosic in his Fantasia. The concert concludes with Schumann’s beautiful piano quartet, with its mesmerising slow movement.
