LATEST NEWS

We are delighted to announce the publication of the 2019 EMF Programme, which includes many gems, including the world première performances of Robin Milford’s Symphony, Vaughan Williams’s The Blue Bird, Lord Berners’ Portsmouth Point, Stanford’s Violin Concerto in D of 1875, and a new work by David Matthews. The full programme is published on this page.

The third Yorkshire Dales EMF was a tremendous success, with events – including a number of new works written specially for the occasion – taking place in mediaeval Bolton Castle, the beautiful church at Aysgarth, and boutique hotel Simonstone Hall. We are currently planning the fourth Autumn Festival and dates and further details will be announced shortly.

Our recording arm, EM Records, has released a number of exciting new recordings, including a triple-disc set of Parry’s complete works for violin and piano and a disc of searingly beautiful choral works by Paul Carr and others. Please visit the EM Records website for full details of these and others!
