Geelvinck Music Museum & Festival

Reset your perception on classical music: experience performances with original historic pianos of the 18th and 19th centuries. These period pianos have an authentic sound, which significantly differs from today's modern concert grand. The early instrument forces the artist to a substantially different playing technique. This leads to fascinating interpretations.

The William Alwyn Foundation

This year’s festival, our eighth annual event, is based primarily in the village of Blythburgh, where Alwyn lived and worked for the last twenty-four years of his life. Alongside a wealth of chamber music and song in Blythburgh’s beautiful church, we present a film matinee at Southwold’s Electric Picture Palace and an art exhibition at CRAFTCO in Southwold.

Many of this year’s performers will be familiar to regular festival audiences, with several new faces alongside. It’s a particular pleasure to show case students from the Royal Academy of Music, marking Alwyn’s long-standing association with that institution. Two award-winning young quartets present exciting programmes of classical and British repertoire, and a return to the Alwyn Festival for distinguished violinist Jennifer Pike will provide a sensational finale to the week.

William Alwyn actively encouraged many other composers throughout his life, and we are proud to continue that legacy by programming a substantial body of new work this year, including commissions by Sally Beamish, Gary Carpenter, David Horne, David Matthews, and Nathan Williamson. We look forward to welcoming you to a feast of both new and familiar music in the beautiful surrounds of Suffolk this autumn.
