The 2010 programme for the HSBC Cheltenham Music Festival is its most diverse and richly-layered yet: performances range from a new choral work composed using DNA coding, to a Schumann celebration featuring Steven Isserlis, and a performance by James Rhodes – a classical pianist with ‘a rock-star attitude’ (Classic FM Magazine).

The Festival’s musical riches encompass names as diverse as Alfred Brendel, Jan Garbarek, Steven Isserlis, Alfie Boe, Fascinating Aida and Robert Fripp. Over 20 performances take place in the Regency spa town’s Pittville Pump Room, and the brand-new Parabola Arts Centre at Cheltenham Ladies College joins the festival’s roster of venues alongside the much older spaces of Gloucester Cathedral and Tewkesbury Abbey.

‘Musically you’ll be spoilt for choice,’ says Festival Director Meurig Bowen. ‘There aren’t many festivals around where you can hear top-rank classical musicians like Imogen Cooper, Steven Isserlis, Sarah Connolly and the Philharmonia alongside jazzers Jan Garbarek and Gwilym Simcock, prog-rock legend Robert Fripp, cabaret queens Fascinating Aida and some chanting Tibetan monks’.
