CANCELLED: BBC Symphony Orchestra & Julia Bullock

Sunday 28 June 5pm (ends approx. 7.10pm)

In the light of the ongoing Coronavirus situation, it is with enormous sadness that we have to cancel the 2020 Aldeburgh Festival.

In these difficult times, our critical focus remains maintaining our vital work supporting artists and communities, and we rely on ticket sales and philanthropy to deliver the majority of this wide-ranging activity. We are living in uncertain times, but we know that music and the arts has the power to make positive change in people’s lives. When we emerge from this lockdown period, this mission will be more important than ever.

If you can, we’d be enormously grateful if you would make a donation to our vital work, which makes a deeply positive impact on thousands of lives every year. Together, we can combat the lasting impact of this virus by bringing the joy of music into people’s lives once again.

All of us at Snape Maltings thank you for your generous support during this uncertain time and wish you and those closest to you strength for the days to come.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Snape again soon.

She sings Britten’s setting of Rimbaud’s vivid and fantastical poems and his arrangement of the second movement of Mahler’s largest symphony.

Turnage’s piece is a response to Klimt’s 1902 painting, Beethoven Frieze, while Mussorgsky translates the pictures of his friend, Viktor Hartmann, into resounding music worthy of a festival finale.
