Big names head for Cotswolds.

THE Chipping Campden Music Festival may be barely five years old but it has confirmed its place on the international festival scene with an impressive line-up for this spring.

World-renowned pianists Emmanuel Ax and Angela Hewitt, violinist Tasmin Little, soprano Emma Kirkby and top vocal ensemble The Sixteen are just some of the big names who will take part in the five day festival which runs from May 16.

Other highlights include the London Mozart Players, the up-and-coming Belcea Quartet and the City of London Chamber Orchestra.

They will all be performing in the lovely setting of St James's Church in the attractive village on the edge of Warwickshire.

The combination of good music and Cotswold charm last year attracted audiences from as far as the USA as well as from far-flung parts of the UK - and most concerts sold out.

Festival founder and organiser Charlie Bennett, says: "Once again we have some of the most prestigious musicians performing for us in the magnificent setting of St James's Church. Proof that we are now firmly established on the festival scene is provided by the fact that we are constantly being approached by artists who want to be part of, to quote one of last year's performers, 'this truly remarkable festival'."
