​Beethoven's 250th Anniversary 
Clun Valley Music 2020 highlights the 250th Anniversary of Beethoven's birth. All concerts will feature his chamber works, a central pillar of our musical culture.

On Thursday 14th May at 7.30 pm at St Georges Church in Clun and following previous highly successful concerts, we are delighted to open our season witha celebrity recital by one of the brightest stars of the vocal firmament, baritone Roderick Williams  accompanied by Shropshire-based pianist Susie Allan. Amongst Britain’s best-loved singers, Roderick Williams won the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Singer of the Yearaward in 2016 and was awarded an OBE for services to music in 2017. Williams sings regularly in all the major UK opera houses and has performed in concert with an impressive roster of the world’s greatest orchestras and conductors.

 

The curators' continuing mission for Clun Valley Music is to bring highest quality music to this lovely corner of Shropshire, including recitals by established professionals as well as some of today's most talented young artists, and presenting a diverse and inspiring range of repertoire. This year’s programmes also pay tribute to the distinguished composer 

John Joubert who died early in 2019. A frequent visitor to Clun, he was also 

associated with the Presteigne Festival where he was composer-in-

residence in 1997.

 

 

The Beethoven series continues on July 3rdand 4th  2020 with the prizewinning Ruisi Quartet who will perform the complete RazumovskyQuartets alongside works by Bartok, Shostakovich and Joubert.
