News Updates

Hertfordshire Festival of Music
Friday 9 to Sunday 11 June 2017

Hertfordshire Festival of Music Hidden Hertford - the Haydn Connection

Concerts include:


Friday 9th 7:30pm

Acclaimed as a pianist of 'amazing power and panache' (The Telegraph), Clare Hammond weaves a virtuosic programme around Haydn's masterwork Fantasia in C.

Featuring tribute pieces to both Haydn and the late, great, John McCabe, written by some of the UK's leading composers, the concert concludes with a dazzling display of pianism - Stravinsky's Petroushka Suite.


Saturday 10th 5:00 pm

The centrepiece of this year's Festival focuses on the remarkable composer and impresario Johann Salomon, who persuaded Haydn to visit England in 1791. Emma and Marcia recreate the special atmosphere surrounding Haydn's stay in Hertfordshire which inspired the creation of some of his most delightful songs, set in English. With a chance to hear the authentic sound of the fortepiano, this is a true treasure trove of late eighteenthcentury musical life.

Songs and keyboard works by Haydn, Pinto, Salomon, Shield and Storace


Sunday 11th 3:30 pm

One of the most sought-after quartets of their generation, the Carducci Quartet gives the world première of Featured Living Composer Matthew Taylor's keenly awaited 8th Quartet. The Haydn theme continues with one of his most popular early works, String Quartet op.20 no.4, complemented by an equally youthful masterpiece by his pupil, Beethoven's String Quartet op.18 no.4. Arvo Pärt's Summa brings an otherworldly quality to this exciting programme.
