The fourth annual International Wimbledon Music Festival runs from 10 – 25 November, and offers a feast of world-class music making in the heart of South West London, with links to other music festivals in Australia, the US and Canada.
A key component of the Wimbledon Music Festival is international collaboration and co-commissioning of programmes with other festivals. This year the Festival has announced a collaboration with three other music festivals in Australia, Texas and Alaska, to co-perform a piece by British composer Benjamin Wallfish, inspired by paintings and sculptures by the French artist Arman, who later became a US citizen. Now that’s truly international! The arrangement will premiere in Europe at the Festival’s Gala Concert on 24 November.
Australian performers will also be showcased through pieces by Beethoven and Brahms being performed in collaboration with the MartinÅ¯ Festival in Basel, with a concert that will celebrate the Festival’s international partners. It will include pianist Piers Lane, the Artistic Director of the Australian Festival of Chamber Music.
