Welcome to the 2014 Machynlleth Festival, a week of inspiring music making: lunchtime, evening and late night concerts, talks, interviews and masterclasses.

The nerve centre and the heart of our festival is the Tabernacle, now converted into what everyone agrees is one of the finest small concert halls in Europe.

This very special hall will host jazz from the brilliant duo of Gwilym Simcock and Yuri Goloubev, choral singing from the celebrated Hogia’r Ddwylan Male Voice Choir, late night music from the extraordinary accordionist, Miloš Milivojević, and a free children’s concert from the dazzling percussionists, O Duo, returning by popular demand.

The classical programme features many celebrated artists – among them two leading young string quartets, The Heath and The Tippett, the tenor Ian Bostridge, pianists Bengt Forsberg and Charles Owen and the violist and violinist Lawrence Power. The musical highlights include such masterpieces as Schumann’s Piano Quintet, Schubert’s sublime last piano sonata and his great song cycle, Die Schöne Mullerin, Beethoven’s C minor String Quartet, Mahler’s Songs of a Wayfarer and Chausson’s unique Concerto for violin, piano and string quartet.

On Sunday the 24th, to accompany a special exhibition in the Tannery Gallery, there will be a day to remember and commemorate the First World War, with music written on both sides of the conflict. Ravel, Elgar, Bartok, Debussy, Janacek, Rachmaninov, Stravinsky, Satie and Gershwin will all be there. As indeed I hope you will be, for this and many other of the week’s events and concerts in this very special part of the world.
