CANCELLED: Imogen Cooper

Saturday 27 June 11am (ends approx. 1pm)

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.

Adès takes as his starting point a Dowland lute song and both his and Britten’s works reflect on the nature of darkness and night.

Beethoven’s fascinatingly quirky collection of short ‘pot boiler’ Bagatelles opens this recital by one of the finest interpreters of Classical repertoire.
