Tickets are now on sale for the fourth West Wicklow Festival which takes place from 20th – 24th May 2019. Building on the success of previous festivals, the 2020 West Wicklow Festival boasts an incredible line-up of musicians and artists from all over the world, with concerts being held at Russborough House and St. Mary’s Church, Blessington.

 The Festival has once again expanded its programme and this year will feature 15 incredible artists over 5 days. The 2020 programme features performances from the captivating Polish mezzo-soprano Hanna Hipp, internationally acclaimed American violinist Tai Murray with German pianist Silke Avenhaus, renowned French string quartet Quatuor Arod, prominent Swiss based ensemble Trio Gaspard, principal flute of the London Symphony Orchestra Adam Walker and the Festival’s Founder & Artistic Director, celebrated Irish pianist Fiachra Garvey. The festival will also feature rising Irish stars Phoebe White (violin) and Peter Regan (piano).

 

“This year’s programme marks two very important events – the 250th Anniversary of the birth of Beethoven and the 80th anniversary of the sinking of the Blessington Lakes.

We celebrate some of the most iconic chamber works by Beethoven and compliment these with works from the 17th century through to the present day, by both male and female composers. We continue our commitment to contemporary music by featuring a newly commissioned work by Gerald Barry, as well as works by Helena Winkelmann and Ian Wilson. I look forward to welcoming everyone to the stunning Russborough House in May to enjoy this fantastic programme in a uniquely intimate setting!”

- Fiachra Garvey, Founder & Artistic Director
