Celebrating our 35th year, we look forward to a busy Festival with many artists making their first appearances at LDSM, and welcoming the return of others who have enthralled us in previous years. With a bountiful spread of music from the 12th century to the premières of new works, programmes cover a rich tapestry of diverse genres. Themes, links and new collaborations emanate from Shostakovich, the bicentenary of John Ruskin, women composers, Festival Début Concerts, Janáček and silent film.
Online bookings open 3 June and telephone bookings open 10 June. Browse the Festival programme below, or download the 2019 Festival Diary.
