Gregynog Festival 2017,  Gregynog Festival 2017
Gregynog Festival is the oldest festival in Wales and one of the UK’s premier classical music events. The University and seaside town of Aberystwyth provides the location for our opening day on 16 June. The National Library of Wales' collections have inspired this year's curation and items will be on special display. The Artistic Director introduces the Festival and its theme of Pageantry, and our concerts reflect the early 20th-century early music revival, with performances in the intimate Council Chamber, overlooking Cardigan Bay, by harpist Paul Dooley and lutenist Thomas Dunford. Our opening weekend (17 & 18 June) celebrates the pioneering work of Arnold Dolmetsch in reviving the performance of early music at the start of the 20th century. Danish recorder virtuosa Michala Petri, harpsichordist Mahan Esfahani and the Ricercar Consort present programmes inspired by Dolmetsch's family ensemble, prefaced by a special introductory talk by Jeanne Dolmetsch, grand-daughter of Arnold and Musical Director of the Dolmetsch Foundation. Our second weekend (23 - 25 June) takes place at the National Trust's Chirk Castle, with performances in the historic Chapel which seats just 70. The star-studded weekend features Australian saxophonist Amy Dickson, pianist Llyr Williams and clarinettist Robert Plane with the Gould Piano Trio, together with talks about the patronage of T. E. Scott-Ellis, 8th Baron Howard de Walden. Experience the Castle's artistic life at the start of the twentieth century. The Festival arrives at its inspiration - Harlech and its artistic community of a century ago. Our five-day programme from 28 June reflects the richness of artistic life in 1917 Harlech, featuring a commissioned dance work on the beach in tribute to Margaret Morris, a special trip on the Ffestiniog Railway to Coed-y-Bleiddiau, Granville Bantock's home, together with music, talks, exhibitions and visits. We close the Festival on 2 July with a celebratory event at Harlech Castle, recalling the 150th anniversary of the Harlech Festival.
