The East Neuk Festival sees 12 days of music from across the world, performed in venues throughout the East Neuk of Fife, from Wed 22 Jun – Sun 3 Jul 2016.
2016 is a Romantic year for the East Neuk Festival with the music of Mendelssohn, Schumann, Chopin, Liszt, Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninov weaving prominently through its core chamber music programme. It is also a year of Remembrance with the world premiere of a special new commission and nationwide community project to mark the Centenary of the Battle of the Somme on the last day of the Festival.
There is no hint of solemnness at the start of the Festival though: the opening weekend of 25/26 June features classic jazz and rhythmic fusions of world music and is soon followed by the accomplished young musicians of the East Neuk Festival Retreat in two showcase concerts on 28 and 30 June.
As ever, the East Neuk region weaves its own magic into the programme with an array of inspirational venues, including the many churches dotted along the coastline from Crail to Elie, and the Cambo Estate’s remarkable potato barn (always uniquely dressed for the occasion).
