The Llandeilo Fawr Festival of Music will return this summer.

Historically, the festival has played a substantial role in nourishing the future of classical music.

The 24-year old event seeks to continue its mission this year, by gathering renowned artists within the community, at a time when the concern for classical music's future is palpable.

Starting on July 13, the festival will open with 'The Forgotten Scarlatti.' Julia Jones, the festival's artistic director, describes this event as a significant moment in the festival’s history.

For the first time in Wales, the festival will see two masterpieces by legendary Italian composer, Francesco Scarlatti performed.

Ms Jones said: "The manuscripts of these works had lain hidden for over three centuries, in Oxford’s Bodleian Library."

The pieces, labeled as 'spectacular' and 'the find of the century,' will be performed by the admired singers and orchestra of Armonico Consort.

The festival's opening day will also entertain a 'Family Come and Sing' event.

Parents and children can be part of a dress rehearsal, singing alongside the accomplished musicians of the Armonico Consort, under the direction of their young director, Christopher Monks.

As more people share, and engage in, the rejuvenation of classical music, the festival sees a promising future for the genre.

The activities are far from over after the opening.

Music enthusiasts can anticipate an extensive week of musical performances.

The next day, July 14, features Catrin Finch and Aoife Ni Bhrian in a striking musical conversation.

On July 15, the Treske String Quartet will show impassioned intensity.

Aquinas Piano Trio, named as one of Britain's most desirable chamber groups, is set to perform on July 16.

Recognised as one of Britain's leading pianists', Llyr Williams, will delight the audience on July 17.

July 18 will see a performance by contralto Jess Dandy and pianist Ceri Owen.

On July 19, London's finest Brass Quintet, Barbican Brass, will entertain.

The festival culminates on July 20 with a choral celebration featuring Cantorion John S. Davies Singers.

The festival also offers an array of free lunchtime recitals from accomplished artists like Huw Tregelles Williams, Sage Taylor, Thomas Howell, Gerald Jones, and Wyn Turner.

There will also be a Coffee Morning with Elen Jones for 'Eisteddfodau Llandeilo'. For more information, visit the Llandeilo Festival of Music website.
