Martin Randall Festivals

Celebrating music and place

There surely can be few greater musical pleasures than listening to music in the places most closely associated with the composer or the first performance. Linking the music to the places so central to the composers’ lives, and providing the historical context, is at the heart of all our planning, as is ensuring that the music itself is performed by artists of the highest international standing.

The audiences on our classical music festivals are formed of participants who take a package which includes access to all the private concerts, accommodation, flights from the UK and transfers, meals with wine, talks by a musicologist, tips and much else besides.

Below you can watch footage of The Johann Sebastian Bach Journey, captured in May 2019, which offers an insight into the Martin Randall Festival experience.

Our festivals in 2023 are: Music Along the Rhine (23–30 June), Celebrating William Byrd (1–5 July), The Bach Journey (4–10 September) and The Thomas Tallis Trail (20–22 October). 

In 2024, we are planning to offer: Salzburg String Quartet Festival (7–12 May), Mozart Along the Danube (28 July–4 August), The Divine Office (September), and Opera in Sicily (18–24 October).
