Founded in 1982 in the former county town of Radnorshire, the Presteigne Festival has become a significant part of the Welsh cultural calendar and is internationally renowned for its commissioning of new work, support of living composers and with a long tradition for the encouragement of young artists.

The festival’s orchestra, conducted by Artistic Director George Vass, explores a selection of the many new works premiered by the festival in this volume of recent music for string orchestra, including: the collaborative Variations on 'Lovely Joan' for strings (composers Thomas Hyde, Adrian Williams, David Matthews, Michael Berkeley, Christopher Gunning, Huw Watkins, Sally Beamish and Matthew Taylor); Martin Butler's Concerto for Soprano Saxophone and Strings performed by Amy Dickson; Joe Duddell's Mnemonic for flute, harp and strings; and Beginnings (Three Early Songs), Op. 54, and Divertimento, Op. 51, by Hugh Wood.
