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.

This varied programme takes in Beethoven’s ‘Harp’ Quartet, named by his publisher for the pizzicato sections in the allegro of the first movement. Schonberg’s dramatic Ode to Napoleon Buonaparte, set to a poem by Lord Byron, was written in 1942 as an impassioned protest against tyranny. We conclude with Ravel’s mighty Piano Trio, which was written in 1914 and completed quickly so that the composer could enlist. Composed whilst Ravel was staying in French Basque territory in the deep south west of France, the trio is influenced by Basque dance rhythms.
