Southbank Sinfonia | Anghiari

Anghiari Festival

Saturday 19 – Sunday 27 July 2014

This summer, join Southbank Sinfonia for an unforgettable experience in the exquisite Tuscan hill-town of Anghiari. For many friends and supporters, our annual residency at the Anghiari Festival is the highlight of the year where orchestral, choral and chamber music abounds from every piazza, church and cloister.

Highlights from the Festival programme  include Schubert’s lyrical Fifth Symphony, Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto, and the ever-popular Coro Maratona where singers from Britain and Italy come together with the orchestra to perform Mendelssohn’s Song of Praise.

We are joined by friends old and new as Vox Musica return for a baroque concert, the Parliament Choir joins forces with the Coro Maratona, and special guests the Allegri Quartet perform side-by-side with Southbank Sinfonia players for Mendelssohn’s impassioned Octet. Alongside all our evening concerts are a whole host of lunchtime and early evening chamber concerts where you can enjoy works by Gershwin, Piazzolla and Mussorgsky among others.

In a new addition to our Festival programme, Simon Over will be joined at the piano by friends including the Allegri Quartet and acclaimed viola soloist Philip Dukes for a special evening concert of chamber music in Piazza del Popolo.

If you are joining us for the 2014 festival, please contact Charlotte Castle (email or call 020 7921 0370) who will be keeping all attendees up to date with the latest essential information about Southbank Sinfonia’s plans.

‘The orchestra’s residency in Anghiari, which is the backbone of the town’s music festival, has been a highlight of my summer for the last few years.’
