BAGATELLES AFTER BEETHOVEN
Once a year Presteigne Festival brings one of its projects to MaO as part of a UK wide tour. The tour enables the festival’s highly-respected work, the commissioning of music to sit alongside existing repertoire, to go be shared across the UK. In our 2016-17 season we welcomed Clare Hammond and James Turnbull who gave a stunning performance which included the commission Raven’s Cage by Ninfea Crutwell-Reade, Royal Philharmonic Society composition prize-winner 2015. Going back further to our 2015-16 season we saw another exceptional concert born from conversations at Presteigne between Fenella Humphreys and composer Cheryl Frances-Hoad. Join us this year to witness another delight from this festival: Bagatelles after Beethoven performed by Tim Horton.
