Welcome to Pinner Music Festival 2018!

To follow last year’s very successful PMF, we have another terrific line-up of concerts for the week.

For the lunchtime seminar on Monday 4th June, we are fortunate to have Petroc Trelawny (of BBC Radio 3) interviewing visiting musicians, a fantastic introduction to the week from the performers’ perspective.

The Pinner Parish Church Choir will sing romantic British music on Tuesday evening, including several pieces by Hubert Parry, the 100th anniversary of whose death falls this year.

The first concert by visiting artists on Wednesday will be by the Dante String Quartet, one of the UK’s finest, in a Russian-themed programme that includes Beethoven’s dramatic 3rd Rasumovsky, Shostakovich’s fascinating 11th and Tchaikovsky’s beautiful 1st quartet.

Our Young Artist recital on Thursday lunchtime features Romanian pianist Mihai Ritivoiu, who will perform works by Couperin, Beethoven’s Les Adieux Sonata, Chopin and Janacek.

That evening, the London Harp Quartet perform a dance-themed recital on four concert harps, including popular classics by Delibes, Bach, Gershwin, Tchaikovsky, Schubert & Massenet, and commissions including a premiere from Emmy® award-winner Gavin Greenaway.

On Friday, Opera Anywhere will present their delightful ‘reduced’ production of Mozart’s Magic Flute. Nine young singers, plus an ensemble of keyboard and flute will bring the truly magical and entertaining story to life for us.

The final concert has Festival Choir, Orchestra and Soloists in Handel’s dramatic oratorio, Belshazzar, which tells the story of the fall of Babylon.

PMF's charity for 2018 is Hillingdon Autistic Care & Support. We hope you will come along, enjoy some exquisite music in the lovely surroundings of Pinner Parish Church and support a very good cause. (If you would like to become an Individual Sponsor for this year's festival, please download this form.)

Finally, to enhance the PMF experience further, our kind neighbours at Friends restaurant have organised a special 'pre-concert' menu, specifically for ticket holders, and will make a donation for each cover sold. We're very grateful for their support. Please call the restaurant to book your table.

Very best wishes.
