RNCM Strings Festival 2019

Welcome to the 2019 RNCM Strings Festival, a weekend celebrating string music across a range of concerts, workshops, talks and masterclasses: showcasing artistry and learning at the highest levels.

I am delighted to welcome many internationally-renowned artists to perform and inspire during the weekend. These include conductor Henk Guittart, the Elias String Quartet, cellist István Várdai, violist Matthew Lipman and violinists Ning Feng and Sophia Jaffé, to name but a few. They perform together with other fine artists, many of whom teach at the RNCM, in musical collaborations with our students.

On Saturday evening, our String Orchestra will give the UK première of Pavel Fischer’s Temperaments, as well as an exhilarating large-scale performance of Schoenberg’s Verklärte Nacht. Our Festival ends with a unique collaboration between RNCM string students and the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra. I look forward to welcoming you to share these experiences.

Chris Hoyle artistic director
