The beautiful island of Islay plays host to a repertoire of world-class classical music. Focusing on collaboration, education and creativity, the festival encourages participants to push their boundaries. This is echoed in a summer school that allows young musicians to work with established practitioners.
To the beautiful Hebridean Island of Islay, Cantilena beings equally beautiful music, from the dazzling virtuosity of Vivaldi and Bach, through the romantic sophistication of Beethoven and Schubert, right up to the challenges of modern composers. The professional musicians involved in Cantilena are driven by a powerful desire to share their ideas and passionate love of music-making with the emerging generation. Each year they invite young musicians from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, who benefit greatly from the opportunity of working alongside more experienced players.
