Composer threads woven into the 2014 Aldeburgh Festival

Aldeburgh isn’t a festival that picks a single theme for the year – there are always numerous narratives and themes to explore. Britten’s music, of course, is always a recognisable feature, as is the internationalist outlook of Artistic Director Pierre-Laurent Aimard.

There are always composers whose work runs across different programmes in the Festival. This year, while many composers are featured, these are the ones whose music is a recurring theme. Click the names to view events featuring these composers:
