Following a successful first festival in February and a sold-out ‘encore’ event in May, the Chiltern Arts Festival will launch its second season with an autumn weekend of dazzling concerts exploring the music of Bach, his contemporaries and music inspired by his works.

Audiences will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in music from Bach and his contemporaries, right through to modern jazz explorations of the same music over four events across the Chilterns. 

In Hambleden on September 28, violinist Fenella Humphreys plays a programme from her award-winning album Bach2theFuture and on September 29, Chiltern Arts presents a beautiful baroque evening in Great Missenden with harpsichord player Alastair Ross, violinist Bruno van Esseveld and cellist George Ross exploring Bach’s duo, solo and trio works.

On September 30 in Berkhamsted David Rees-Williams and his renowned trio perform renditions of their sophisticated modern jazz explorations of Bach and the music of other great composers – plus a special event introducing the man behind the trio as David Rees-Williams talks to Classic FM’s Katie Breathwick before the concert at The Berkeley Wine Bar and Art Gallery.
