Article in the Sussex Express following the Festival
The last few days have been an unforgettable musical experience…Not only were all the performances we heard outstanding but the obvious community feeling between the artists added to the atmosphere. The programming was also very imaginative offering the traditional alongside the more challenging…It has contributed enormously already to the cultural life of the town – congratulations!
Simply astounding chamber music at Lewes Festival this evening. Playing like this makes me wonder if I should sack in my opera obsession!
Congratulations of a truly memorable festival. The Faure that ended the Festival was spectacular and the Beethoven trio right at the start was equally world class. What a privilege is has been to hear music making of such an amazing standard in Lewes. And such adventurous and stimulating programmes too.
