2019 marks a new step forward. Sainte-Mère Festival has supported over 50 talented young musicians and one of the most promising new quartet ensembles in Europe. This year we are also supporting an exceptional young composer. The Festival has been fortunate enough to join the famous Aldeburgh Festival of England and The Philips Collection of Washington, in a co-commission of a new piece for string quartet by Freya Waley-Cohen. The European premiere forms part of this year’s exciting summer programme. The details are now on the website.
With best wishes,
