About the festival

Since its start in 1997, the Delft Chamber Music Festival has grown into a world-class chamber music festival. Every summer, violinist and artistic leader Liza Ferschtman invites the cream of the international crop of classical musicians to join her in making music against the splendid historical backdrop of Delft and its surroundings. Unique programmes are performed in a festive, summery and intimate setting.

The outstanding quality of the musicians, the passion of the performances, and the unique approach to music that never loses sight of tradition, have all ensured the festival's international renown. The Delft Chamber Music Festival thanks its sponsors, partners, supporters and Dikke Vrienden (close friends) for their contributions.
