Hertfordshire Festival of Music 2024

World class classical music in the heart of Herts

Now in its eighth year, the theme of this year’s Hertfordshire Festival of Music is ‘The Power of 2: Musical and Artistic Dialogues. During the course of the Festival, the profound connections and conversations between musicians, artists, and their audiences - and the essence of these interactions - will be explored through a series of concerts, talks and other events with a fascinating range of musicians, artists and original thinkers.
HFoM is honoured to have dazzling piano duo Katya Apekisheva and Charles Owen, one of the most highly-acclaimed piano duos performing today, as this year’s Principal Artists. In addition to a two - piano recital at All Saints’ Church in Hertford, there will also be an opportunity to gain artistic insights and inspiration in a free piano duo masterclass given by Katya Apekisheva at the beautiful Queenswood School in Hatfield.

The festival opens with a dialogue, ‘My Life in Music’ - a conversation and performance with singer/ composer Tom Randle and the Rossetti Ensemble, featuring his own music alongside that of Vaughan Williams and Dvorak.

Violinist Litsa Tunnah returns this year and is joined by Festival Artistic Director James Francis Brown in a performance featuring his second Violin Sonata as well as works by Vaughan Williams and Beethoven.

Friday June 14th will be a day of songs and tangos with a documentary on composer David Matthews, performances by the Choir of St Andrew, culminating in a lively evening with Tango Siempre.

On the final Saturday, clarinettist Poppy Beddoe and pianist Timothy End join forces for a concert featuring a special world premiere, while the grand finale sees Principal Artists Katya Apekisheva and Charles Owen give a thrilling two-piano recital at All Saints’ Church. This promises to be an event full of dynamic interplay and remarkable artistic unity.
