It is with extreme regret that the 2020 Festival has been cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We do hope that you can join us at the 2021 Festival where we will celebrate our postponed 20th anniversary.
Our Artistic Directors have been busy working on the programme for the 2020 Festival, and there are two themes this year; the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth and of no less importance, Cantilena’s 20th season on Islay. To help us celebrate, we’ll be joined by our old friend and player, Angus Anderson (violin), and towards the end of the week by oboe and horn players for a performance of Mozart Symphony No. 26 and a symphony by Haydn. Earlier in the week the Festival will commence with Beethoven’s Archduke Piano Trio and Schubert’s Trout Quintet. The rest of the week will have old favourites, new works and the popular Students’ Showcase. Look out for the publication of the full Programme in late Spring, along with more information about the Festival and tickets, and be sure to sign up so that you don’t miss it!
