On April 21 it was announced that all large-scale events due to the corona pandemic are prohibited until September 1. In accordance with the guidelines of the National Government and RIVM, the 24th edition of the chamber music festival will therefore not take place this summer. As disappointing as it is, we understand this decision because it affects the health of you, our audience, our musicians and employees. We are currently looking into whether something can be organized for our audience this summer: semi-live or digital.

Farewell Liza Ferschtman
The cancellation of the 24th edition of the festival creates another special situation. Liza Ferschtman would say goodbye as artistic director after this edition. This year she wanted to put together the festival once more in order to experience the special atmosphere in Delft intensely with dear musicians and the loyal audience. After that she wants to take more space for her solo career and to be able to perform at other (summer) festivals. Her last festival and farewell have now been postponed for a year. Liza is succeeded by pianist Nino Gvetadze.

The board is very happy with her appointment: Nino has the musical and social personality to further expand the festival in line with her predecessors Isabelle van Keulen and Liza Ferschtman. Festival 2021 The first part of the programming of the Delft Chamber Music Festival 2021 will be composed by Liza. The second part by Nino. It promises to be a special edition. We hope you are there to say goodbye to Liza and to welcome Nino.
