Brinkburn Music Festival 2012

Brinkburn Music festival takes place over a weekend in July at Brinkburn Priory in the heart of Northumberland. The priory, nestling in quiet solitude in a bend of the meandering river Coquet, is a 12th century Augustine priory which has been beautifully restored after falling into 'ruinous decay' several hundred years ago.

For the weekend of the festival, the priory resounds with great classical music. The empty priory is transformed for the event: with carpeting to protect the floor; staging so you can see the action; and upholstered seating brought in for the occasion.

The musical programme can be summed up as 'classical' but varies widely under that umbrella, extending from early music to contempory, with musicians ranging from soloists to chamber orchestras. The 2010 programme included Mark Padmore, Carducci Quartet, Nicholas Daniel, Gabrieli Consort, Gabrieli Playes, Pieter Wispelwey, Mahan Esfahani .
