William Shakespeare, through his collected plays and poetry, has inspired artists for centuries. Painters, writers, composers, and film-makers have all turned to these timeless stories as a source for new work. Fête Concerts is proud to celebrate Shakespeare and the composers who have responded to his wealth of emotional and narrative material.

Hans Werner Henze wrote Royal Winter Music for solo guitar in the 1970s as two sonatas based on Shakespearean characters. The title comes from Richard IIIs opening monologue Now is the Winter of our discontent.

Madeleine Dring was an English composer and actress who had a large output of instrumental, vocal, and stage works. Her Seven Shakespeare Songs include Take O take those lips away from Measure for Measure and Come away, death from Twelfth Night.

Christian Jost composed his opera Hamlet in 2008 and portrays the existential quest of the title character by dividing him into a Soprano role and a choir. Hamlet Echoes for viola, soprano, and piano captures the essence of this opera in an intimate chamber work.
