Cambridge Music Festival (CMF) was founded in 1991 and the current director, Justin Lee, has been in post since 2012. The Festival now takes place each November and aims to present classical music in bold, imaginative and inspiring ways. In a city that is positively awash with concerts, the Festival aims to present a carefully chosen programme of world-class artists — whether well-known figures or rising stars — who would not otherwise visit the city, community events and outdoor sound/light projections.
Under Justin’s leadership, CMF has attracted world-class soloists from Murray Perahia and Joshua Bell to Alison Balsom and Nigel Kennedy; chamber music from the Takacs Quartet to the Berlin Philharmonic String Quintet; appearances by iconic composers such as Steve Reich and Philip Glass; and the UK’s leading orchestras and specialist chamber choirs. Younger artists have ranged from the rising stars of schemes such as BBC New Generation Artists to artists at the forefront of avant-garde and contemporary music and cross-arts.
