A Simple Formula ... A Memorable Festival
Midsummer Music is a chamber music festival artistically directed by the renowned concert pianist Paul Lewis and his wife, accomplished cellist, Bjørg Lewis.
Paul and Bjørg adopt a simple formula with which they create a memorable festival: to invite the musicians they admire and to programme works that inspire them. Setting that experience in such a beautiful and intimate space as St Mary Magdalene, brings another dimension. The proximity of the musicians means that you not only hear the music, you can feel it too. The musicians' conviviality is also strongly sensed by the audience and is the reason why a good core of the audience return year after year.
