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.

Fanny and Felix: a programme of music for strings by Felix Mendelssohn and his sister Fanny, interspersed with readings from their letters by the actor Samuel West.

Musical siblings Fanny and Felix Mendelssohn grew up in Berlin in the 1820s, performing music together, and advising each other on their compositions – even when they were apart - through the medium of letters. Although Felix Mendelssohn’s music has a much higher profile and received much greater acclaim in his lifetime, Fanny’s compositions are equally accomplished and original. Some of her work was published under Felix’s name during their lifetime, including the song ‘ltalien’ which was specially requested by Queen Victoria for a performance at Buckingham Palace.
