BREMF 2017

27th October – 12th November 2017

ORIGINS - tracing the tangled roots of Western music

Our theme for 2017 will dig deep into our past and explore the varied routes along which music travelled, tracing the origins of many classical forms and instruments.
We will encounter traditional music from many parts of the world and see how it blended seamlessly with the more ‘cultivated’ music we think of as classical.
Over the next few months we will be finalising another exciting programme of events featuring a mix of well-established performers and newly emerging talent.
Full details will be published here in spring 2017. In the meantime why not join our mailing list to keep up to date with the latest news.
