The Peasmarsh Chamber Music Festival aims to bring world-class musicians to this small corner of rural East Sussex allowing audiences to enjoy international chamber music on their doorstep. With seven concerts over four days, it is a significant event in the regional cultural calendar.
Presenting some of the best-loved chamber music of Schubert, Brahms and Beethoven, the Festival also includes works by Britten, whose 100th Anniversary is celebrated this year. We are delighted to welcome a number of special international guests : the exceptional Serbian pianist Aleksandar Madžar, the award winning Navarra Quartet and the stunning classical accordionist James Crabb. Continuing its work encouraging new and young artists the Festival is delighted to welcome three exceptional young wind players: Timothy Orpen, Nicolas Fleury and Peter Whelan to join with other Festival artists in Beethoven’s Septet as our finale. We are excited to announce that this closing concert will also include the world premiere of a new Festival commission by American composer Arlene Sierra.
