Virtual Chamber Music Festival

The international nature of the Festival gave us the opportunity to gather together some of the cancelled Festival musicians in a selection of venues around Europe and USA. Programmes were thought up that took into account the isolation of the last three months and production companies were located to film and record the performances as lockdown regulations were relaxed over the last ten days.

Festival Memories 10

In retrospect it may have been tempting fate to conclude our 24th Festival with Messiaen’s extraordinary quartet that announces the End of Time. Last summer’s Bantry performance featured violinist Henning Kraggerud who never fails to astonish with his musicianship, the brilliant young cellist Laura van der Heijden mature beyond her years, the remarkable Slovenian clarinettist Mate Bekavac and a favourite Bantry pianist Alexei Grynyuk.
