Februari Festival 2021

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic this year's February Festival has been postponed. It will be held from 30 June till 4 July 2021. This edition will feature Camille Saint-Saëns (1835-1921), about whom cellist Steven Isserlis once said: 'Saint-Saens is exactly the sort of composer who needs a festival to himself [..]. His works are rewarding in every way. And he's an endlessly facinating figure'.

Although Saint-Saëns was one of the most popular French composers until the 1920s, the repertoire for which he is known to the general public extends to only five works at most. The fourth edition of the Februari Festival will be a genuine happening with a varied and refreshing introduction to well-known and lesser-known gems by Saint-Saëns and his contemporaries. Ticket sales have been started on the Februari Festival website!
