Aldeburgh Festival
8-24 June 2018, Suffolk, United Kingdom

Aldeburgh Festival 2018 celebrates Britten and America. It also reflects 1948 - the remarkable period in post-war British history when the festival began and when so much of what we now regard to be the backbone of our cultural life was launched. In his centenary the music of Bernstein plays a significant part in the festival. Britten and Bernstein: composers, pianists, conductors, programme planners, educators, and major media figures were towering creative leaders, and are linked but rarely met each other. They sailed against prevailing winds and were celebrated and revered everywhere, and here they can be heard side by side with many connections that resonate across the festival. These links include Peter Grimes, W H Auden, Revd Walter Hussey and their composing friend Aaron Copland.

Bregenz Festival
18 July — 20 August 2018, Vorarlberg, Austria

One year after the end of the Second World War, the first Bregenz Festival was held: the week-long Bregenz Festwoche. The inaugural performance was staged upon two barges moored on Lake Constance - one carrying the stage structures for Mozart's early work Bastien et Bastienne, the other the orchestra. In a town that did not even possess a theatre, the idea of mounting a festival seemed eccentric; but the initially makeshift solution of choosing the loveliest part of the town - the lake - as the stage proved to be a hugely successful one. Visitors from Austria, Germany, Switzerland and France made the Festival an international event in its very first year. The Festival orchestra from the outset was the Vienna Symphony Orchestra, which has made a major contribution to the evolution and success of the Festival.
