SPIRITED

Spirited, the Festival Gazette, was launched in March 2011. This exciting publication contains extensive and in-depth features on composers, works to be featured during the forthcoming Festival, the history and significance of venues associated with the EMF, and a full report, with photos, of the previous Festival, as well as several pages of CD and book reviews and recommendations.

 

More information about the publication, as well as an online subscription form, will be available on this page soon.

 

 

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!
