Katy Hamilton concert introductions

Treat yourself to an immersive weekend of Beethoven tucked away in a beautiful corner of Gloucestershire and enjoy some convivial company over lunch, dinner and drinks.

Our Festival ‘prelude’ weekend celebrates the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth. It gives a unique insight into Beethoven’s chamber music, alongside works by composers inspired by him. The programme is curated and performed by pianist Timothy Horton with members of the Leonore Piano Trio and friends from the acclaimed Ensemble 360 – renowned for their bold programming and engaging interpretations. Entertaining and informative pre-concert talks are provided by musicologist and broadcaster Katy Hamilton.

Supported by Sir Michael & Lady McWilliam
