Event Times*: Please Contact Venue. Details Below

Each year in late August the Machynlleth Festival takes place: a week of splendid music making by eminent performers.|What a pleasure for me to be back in this beautiful part of the world and to bring with me some of the finest musicians I know. They are always entranced by the beauty of the town and surrounding hills and valleys, the superb acoustics of The Tabernacle, and above all your uniquely warm welcome.| This year as ever the first three days are rich in traditional Welsh music-making, including a Cymanfa Ganu, the Arpando Harp Duo, the Three Welsh Tenors and Côr Godre’r Aran.| Other highlights early in the week include the Children’s Concert, free for all to attend, presented this year by the dazzling Erlkings from Vienna, and the famous duo of John Etheridge and Chris Garrick for the Jazz Night.| On Thursday the Bulgarian pianist Plamena Mangova plays us a wonderfully varied programme from Beethoven to Latin American dance, and the celebrated Bennewitz Quartet from Prague present Czech masterpieces.| Friday’s highlights include a masterclass for young cellists with the charismatic German cellist Nicolas Altstaedt, a programme about the life and loves of Claude Debussy with the pianist Lucy Parham and actor Tim McInnerny (of Blackadder and Notting Hill fame), and a late night candle lit concert of music by the great JS Bach.| On Saturday the superb pianist Alexander Lonquich plays Schubert’s sublime last piano sonata and later he combines forces with Nicolas Altstaedt and Barnabas Keleman for an evening of classic piano trios by Schubert, Brahms and Beethoven. The late night concert is a Spanish programme for guitar given by the brilliant young Turkish guitarist Emre Gokalp.| One of the greatest British singers, Sir John Tomlinson joins me on Sunday for a performance of Schubert’s Winterreise and later in the afternoon he is interviewed by Christopher Cook about his life in music.| The Festival Finale is a chamber music classic: string sextets by Brahms and Strauss with members of the Sacconi and Endellion String Quartets.| There are pre concert talks, interviews, lectures and photographic exhibitions by leading photographers Jeremy Moore and Sim Canetty-Clarke. So do join us – I promise you it will be a Festival to remember!| Julius Drake, Artistic Director
