    Five years! Now firmly established as a stellar boutique festival and a sold out event, we’ve have lots to celebrate. As a thankyou to you all for making this possible, we’ve pulled out all stops to create a spectacular weekend with some very special guests!

    The extraordinary Anthony Marwood, in constant international demand for his versatility and electrifying musicianship, will be exclusively in Australia for Sanguine. We also have the huge privilege of welcoming Andrew Haveron, former leader of the legendary Brodsky Quartet and now greatly admired concertmaster of the SSO. Also gilding our artist lineup this year are SEMF first-timers Caroline Henbest and Holly Piccoli – a very warm welcome to them, as well as to our “regulars”, Ian and Daniel, Tobi, and the luminous Sara.

    Rarities and gems by Schubert, Brahms, Rimsky Korsakov, Glazunov, Prokofiev, Dvorak and Strauss keep our tradition of discovery alive, but, given the firepower we have at our disposal, we simply could not resist presenting a Mendelssohn Octet this anniversary year! We asked for your favourite work from the last four festivals and we’re truly delighted to perform once more Boccherini’s magical Stabat Mater, which closed our first ever festival’s program. The much-loved “Inside the Music” will bring you into the world of this masterpiece and its language.

    “…. Previous festivals have been superb but this one was even better. The organisation is exemplary with that very necessary element of attention to detail. The friendly atmosphere created by the musicians makes this festival special. Because we meet the same musicians each year (with one or two variations) we have a sense of coming together again for a common purpose and this creates a bond between guests and musicians. “ 2014 feedback
