2019 Retreat

The 2019 ENF Retreat will run from 23-28 June, and will showcase the participating musicians performing together with Alexander Janiczek and Ursula Smith in a public concert on its final day. We are delighted to welcome Emiko Yuasa from Japan and Maxim Calver from the UK to join us for the first time this year.

2019 sees an evolution of our ENF Retreat programme. From the 40-odd remarkable young musicians who have come to Fife to participate so far, we have invited 2 outstanding players to return and take a next step with us. All the Retreat players will enjoy the same intensive playing together experience as in previous years, and additionally Benjamin Baker and Diyang Mei will give solo, duo and concerto performances alongside the chamber concert. We are testing this approach in 2019 as part of the Retreat development process and as time goes on we’ll do this more and more, building up a family of players who regularly appear at the festival. Please see below for details of all three concerts.
