Farley Music Festival 2018

The 2018 Farley Music Festival will take place between Tuesday 19th June and Sunday 24th June.


The 2018 Farley Music Festival will take place between Tuesday 19th June and Sunday 24th June and once again an exciting programme of classical music will be performed across five nights in the unique setting of All Saints’ Church in Farley.  Please see a summary of the five concerts, below.

All concerts take place at: All Saints’ Church, Farley, Salisbury SP5 1AH and tickets will be available from the Salisbury Playhouse, from May 1st, or on the door.

 Tuesday 19th June – 7.00pm
Retorica – Harriet Mackenzie and Philippa Mo, violins
The violinists Philippa Mo and Harriet Mackenzie formed Retorica in 2010 to explore music for two violins, since when they have performed all over the world. Their attractive and wide ranging programme will include their own beautiful arrangements of Bach inventions.
 Wednesday 20th June – 7.00pm
Ariel Lanyi (piano)
Ariel Lanyi is a rising star with an unusually mature instinct for the classical style (a challenge for any pianist) which he will demonstrate in a programme that contrasts Mozart’s tragic Adagio in B minor as well as the sunniest of Schubert sonatas, the one in D major D.850.
 Thursday 21st June  – 7.00pm
Julia Hamos (piano)
Julia Hamos is kindly coming all the way from New York for her recital, where she studied with the great Beethoven interpreter, Richard Goode. Her programme features Beethoven’s Sonata in A major, Op.101 as well as Schumann’s witty and touching Davidsbündlertänze.
 Friday 22nd June – 7.00pm
Isabelle Oehmichen  (piano)
The distinguished French pianist, Isabelle Oehmichen, returns to Farley with music by Mozart, Chopin Liszt and Debussy. Isabelle was a pupil of the legendary Georges Cziffra, so her Liszt will no doubt be illuminating as will her presentation of Debussy’s sparkling L’Isle joyeuse.
 Saturday 23rd June – 7.00pm
Sapori Vocali presents Opera Delight
Enchanting arias and charming ensembles by the best loved composers from Handel to Humperdinck and Ramesh to Rossini, presented by the talented young classical artists of Sapori Vocali.   Translated as ‘Vocal Flavours’, their concert will present a delightful taste of opera favourites in an intimate and informal setting.
Sunday 24th June – 6.00pm
Festival Evensong
A Multitude of Voyces Early Music Workshop, in partnership with Farley Music Festival, Professor Elizabeth Kenny of Southampton University, and The Lute Society, exploring the devotional Psalms of Richard Allison (1599) in a workshop led by Colin Howard and a lutenist to be announced, culminating in Evensong on the theme of ‘Psalms’.

As the Farley Music Festival continues to grow in breadth and ambition, we urgently seek more volunteers to join our merry team to assist in the work required to put on the concerts, and create publicity for them.  It’s all in a very good cause.

We’re looking for willing hands with a few hours of spare time to help make the 2018 Farley Music Festival the most successful ever.

If you would be prepared to join our list of volunteers for 2018 to help in such things as putting up posters on noticeboards, delivering flyers or assisting on front-of-house, please drop an email to friends@farleymusic.co.uk
