The fourteenth Festival of English Music will take place in Oxfordshire from Friday 22nd to Monday 25th May 2020. The annual English Music Festival celebrates the brilliance, innovation, beauty and rich musical heritage of Britain with a strong focus on unearthing overlooked or forgotten masterpieces of the late nineteenth to mid-twentieth century.
Launching the Festival at Dorchester Abbey, Oxfordshire will be the BBC Concert Orchestra, under conductor Gavin Sutherland, to perform a first modern performance of Frederic Cowen’s Symphony no.4, known as ‘The Welsh’, together with a World Première overture by Elgar, and a rare performance of Samuel Coleridge-Taylor’s Violin Concerto, performed by soloist, Rupert Marshall-Luck.
