Cambridge Summer Music

Since Martin James Bartlett’s early public success as the winner of the BBC Young Musician of the Year in 2014, his career has taken him to the finest concert halls and orchestras of the world.

In this unmissable recital, Bartlett presents music of astonishing range, from Rameau and Couperin to Rachmaninoff, Gershwin and Debussy, a variety that has become a calling card of this brilliant musician.

more about Cambridge Summer Music

Since 1980, Cambridge Summer Music (CSM) has brought world-class music and musicians to Cambridge for the enjoyment of everyone in the city and the wider area.

CSM’s annual Summer Music Festival makes an important contribution to the cultural life of our great city, with a programme of high-quality concerts in the second half of July including performances by outstanding soloists, chamber ensembles, choirs, orchestras and bands. Each year, we entertain around 15,000 local, national and international concert-goers of all ages and backgrounds.

We also present popular annual Spring and Christmas concerts, and support talented young artists through new music commissions and performance opportunities. In the coming years, the trustees of CSM have pledged to increase their commitment to music awareness and education for children in the wider Cambridge area.

All of our concerts are presented in historic and beautiful venues, including college chapels, city churches, concert halls and the Cambridge University Botanic Garden. These venues offer opportunities for audiences to visit and experience wonderful Cambridge places and spaces, such as College chapels and precincts, to which they might otherwise have little access.

Cambridge Summer Music is a registered charity and is led by its board of trustees.
