The 2016 classical programme includes the Philharmonia Orchestra with a beautiful programme of Sibelius and Elgar, a rare opportunity to hear Richard Goode playing Schubert’s final three piano sonatas, Tenebrae singing Bruckner and Brahms, Philip Higham performing the Bach Cello Suites, Kenneth Hamilton taking us on a tour with Franz Liszt in 1840s Britain and much more.

The Show. ‘Piaf’s are very big shoes to fill, but Anne Carrere rises to the challenge’ The Times.
