Join our 2024 Artists-in-Residence for a free lively pre-concert discussion, which will set the scene for the opening concert of our season.

Before the world première this evening of his Symphony No 1, Noah Max, our Composer-in-Residence 2023-24, will talk about this new work, and about his life as a visual artist, conductor, composer and poet. Thaxted Festival is proud to support Noah as part of our Developing Artists Programme and through our funding for new commissions. He is joined by Jonathan Bloxham, Resident Conductor and Artistic Advisor of the London Mozart Players, and Music Director of the Luzerner Theater; Iyad Sughayer, pianist and Artist-in-Residence; and Festival Artistic Director Andrew Jenkins.

Venue: United Reformed Church, Bolford Street, Thaxted CM6 2PY
Tickets: free, unreserved seating.

“[The Tippett Quartet] concert as part of the 2023 Thaxted Festival revealed a group of musicians of profound interpretative depth, and capable of traversing a wide range of repertoire.”
Colin Clarke, Classical Explorer
“A positively life-enhancing performance of Donizetti’s The Elixir of Love in English with reduced ensemble by Wild Arts…”
Colin Clarke, Classical Explorer
“The performance was a joy … and the quartet brought out its sense of both structural and linear perfection.” Holst’s Phantasy Quartet Op 36 performed by the Tippett Quartet.
Colin Clarke, Classical Explorer
“The Tippett Quartet and Emma Abbate have performed Schumann’s Piano Quintet together many times. On this occasion they combined flawless execution with instinctive – and utterly engaging – musicianship.”
Claire Seymour, in Seen and Heard International.
“…this was a wonderfully enjoyable and engaging performance that really punched above its weight. The audience in Thaxted clearly loved it and were fully engaged, whilst this experienced reviewer was carried away as well.”
Wild Art’s production of The Elixir of Love, reviewed by Robert Hugill in Planet Hugill
“2 terrific concerts I heard with London Mozart Players.”
Thaxted Festival concertgoer
“I think Gustav is smiling down to see how his memory and that of his best friend and colleague Ralph Vaughan Williams are honoured by the expertly played pieces they both composed.”
Thaxted Festival concertgoer
“It's always the variety and quality which keeps me coming back.”
