Chiltern Arts Festival explores the Musical Identities of Mendelssohn, Wagner and Britten at St Mary's Church, Old Amersham.

Mendelssohn’s youthful and brilliant Octet and Britten’s joyful Sinfonietta were both written when their respective composers were teenagers: the very beginnings of musical identities are visible here, in their earliest, most genuine form. And Wagner’s glorious Siegfried Idyll ties the theme together, painting a picture of time, place and person.


MENDELSSOHN Octet in E-flat, Op.20
WAGNER Siegfried Idyll
BRITTEN Sinfonietta, Op.1
