|June, 2018 | Tour Director: Ashley Solomon / Sandy Burnett|
In June each year, artists such as Thomas Adès, Andrew Watts, Tamsin Waley-Cohen and Ian Bostridge have assembled alongside the likes of the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, the London Sinfonietta and the BBC Symphony Orchestra to bring us the Aldeburgh Festival.
Stirred by the vast skies and moody seas of Suffolk, Britten was inspired to launch the Aldeburgh Festival, with Peter Pears and Eric Crozier. Since it was inaugurated in local venues in 1948, the festival has blossomed into a year-round concert venue at Snape Maltings. Today the world-famous Concert Hall, and both the new Hoffmann and Britten-Pears Buildings, provide a mixture of performance and rehearsal spaces where internationally acclaimed artists perform alongside up-and-coming musicians.
We will soak up the atmosphere and heritage of the area, with visits to the Old Mill and the Red House, both once homes to Britten.
