2024 Summer Concert & Party

Saturday 6th July 2024

“A closely guarded secret with exhilarating atmosphere and artistry’ – The Daily Telegraph

Come and join us for our unique Summer Concert at one of Oxford’s most iconic landmarks, Christ Church Cathedral. Enjoy live music, delicious food, and great company. This event is the perfect way to experience the unmatched Oxford Chamber Music Festival atmosphere and is not to be missed.

Ravel’s magical sonata for Violin and Cello was written between 1920 and 1922. He dedicated it to Claude Debussy, who had died in 1918. It is one of the great masterpieces for both instruments and is in turn dreamy, ferocious, humorous and incredibly evocative. Brahms completed his Piano Trio no. I in January 1854, when the composer was only twenty years old. It is the only of his works which appears in two published versions, as he revised it in 1889, though it is usually the revised version which is performed today. It is considered one of the greatest piano trios ever written.

Festival Founder and Artistic Director Priya Mitchell will share details of our Autumn festival at the event. These Enchanted Isles from 23-28 September 2024 celebrates the boundless creativity of music inspired by the British Isles.
