SOUTH DOWNS SUMMER MUSIC INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL
Simon Callow, Benyounes Quartet & Rob Thompson (piano)
South Downs Summer Music International Festival is delighted to be returning this year bringing an inspiring and varied programme of events set in the beautiful surroundings and acoustics of St Andrew’s Church in Alfriston.
Headlining the festival this year on Saturday 24th July will be the distinguished actor, writer and director Simon Callow. Callow – who has nearly 100 films and TV appearances to his name, ranging from Amadeus (1984) to Doctor Who (2011) – will tell the tragic story of the greatest love triangle in classical music history, that of Brahms and the Schumanns. Readings of their letters will be interspersed with some of their most intimate and passionate works, including Brahms’ magnificent Piano Quintet, performed by the acclaimed Benyounes Quartet and pianist Rob Thompson.
St Andrew’s Church, Alfriston BN26 5TL
