Nash Ensemble

Haydn String Quartet in Bb Op. 76 No 4 25’ ‘The Sunrise’
Judith Weir The Prelude (WP) for flute and string trio 12’ (World Premiere)
Oliver Knussen Masks Op. 3 for solo flute
Dvořák Piano Quintet No. 2 in A Op. 81

The Nash Ensemble make a hugely welcome return for the opening concert of the 2019 Festival, presenting a programme of joyful contrasts. The exquisite Sunrise, from Haydn’s last set of quartets, paves the way for the World Premiere of a work for flute and string trio by Master of the Queen’s Music, Judith Weir. This marks the first of more than 20 major premieres at this year’s Festival. Oliver Knussen’s long and fruitful relationship with the Festival is remembered with his beguiling solo flute work, and the concert concludes with the second quintet of Anton Dvořák, widely considered a masterpiece of the form.

The playing…was incisive, transparent and beautifully shaped. Chamber music doesn’t come any better

Independent on Sunday

Liberal Democrat Pittville Ward Councillor Dennis Parsons has issued a trial closure of West Approach Drive gates at Pittville Pump Room from Monday 1 July to Sunday 14 July. We ask if you’re travelling by car to the venue please take Albert Road and use the East Approach Drive gate instead of the West Approach Drive gate as this will be closed.


Pittville Pump Room

Pittville Pump Room is an elegant Grade 1 listed Regency building and perhaps the most famous example of Regency architecture in Cheltenham. Standing in regal splendour at one end of Pittville Park, the Pump Room is a monument to more than 100 years of fame that Cheltenham enjoyed as a Spa town.

The Festival’s morning recitals at the Pump Room are its continuing glory
