Februari Festival 2021

The third edition of the Februari Festival, in which Beethoven was the principal composer, was an immense success. Click here for a retrospective featuring photographs taken in the Nieuwe Kerk in The Hague during the 2020 Februari Festival.

Next year's Februari Festival will be held from 10 to 14 February 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 fascinating figure.'

In addition to Saint-Saëns, we will shine a spotlight on the Paris of his times as a glorious centre of artistic and musical life. The participating musicians and the programme will be announced soon.
