In its long life, Jordans Music Festival has hosted many remarkable musicians, including Yehudi Menuhin, Jacqueline du Pré, Janet Baker and Simon Rattle, while composers Benjamin Britten, Michael Tippett and Francis Poulenc have conducted or accompanied their own works. The 76th season maintains this high standard, launching on 2 June 2019 with a concert by Peter Donohoe, one of the foremost pianists of our time. His thrilling programme includes Beethoven’s Piano Sonata No. 31, Op. 110, together with works by Schumann, Tchaikovsky and Chopin.


The Festival also continues its tradition of showcasing rising stars of classical music. On 16 June the award-winning young Castalian Quartet, which is rapidly emerging as one of today’s most exciting string quartets, play Beethoven, Janaček and Schumann.


The piano trio Guarneri Trio Prague, always a Jordans favourite, returns on 30 June to treat us to Beethoven’s ‘Archduke’, together with Dvorak’s ‘Dumky’ and a Mozart Trio in G Major. And on 14   July the virtuosic and engaging Ensemble 360 bring the season to a rousing conclusion with Strauss’s ‘Till Eulenspiegel’, Kodaly, and Beethoven’s great septet.


Concerts are held in the Jubilee Hall in School Lane, Seer Green, HP9 2Q, where there is plenty of parking. Tickets are £20 per concert or £68 for a season ticket, available by post or online.  For details visit the Festival website
