Leicester International Music Festival Featured Composer: Thea Musgrave


Leicester International Music Festival Featured Composer: Thea Musgrave

Thomas Le Brocq

The Leicester International Music Festival has announced Thea Musgrave as its featured composer, honouring the composer’s ninetieth birthday. The festival, which runs from September 20-22, will feature selections of Musgrave’s chamber music in five concerts. The inclusion of Musgrave’s music fits into the weekend’s larger focus on music by composers who moved to the United Sates during their careers, composers including Dvořák, Martinu, Rachmaninov and Bartok.

Festival Director Nicholas Daniels will perform the complete chamber works for oboe across the weekend: Night Windows, Niobe, Cantelina for Oboe Quartet, and Dawn in the Event 4 which opens with an eclectic group of Musgrave miniatures. Daniels has said of Musgrave’s work that it ‘shows her absolute mastery and total professionalism’ and ‘when you play a piece of Thea’s it’s almost impossible to believe that she doesn’t play the instrument herself, so fluid and natural is her instrumental and vocal understanding and her complete professionalism.’

The festival welcomes an impressive line-up of soloists and chamber musicians: Marina Chiche (violin), Giovanni Guzzo (violin), Richard O’Neil (viola), Ani Aznavoorian (cello), Katya Apekisheva (piano), Nino Gvetadze (piano) as well as Leonard Elschenbroich (cello) and Double Bassist and Chineke! Founder Chi-Chi Nwanoku. ­The festival is held at Leicester’s New Walk Museum and Art Gallery. For more information visit
