Petworth Festival

Petworth Festival is thrilled to welcome Imogen Cooper. In the words of Sir Simon Rattle, ‘Imogen is one of the greatest musicians England has produced. She’s utterly without show. There’s a poetic, reflective side to her which is always there in her playing. It isn’t Imogen’s style to play to the gallery. She’s not someone who goes in for fireworks in the rafters. But I can bet you that if I were to ask any orchestral musicians who they rate as one of the [greatest], three out of four of them will come up with Imogen’s name first time around – and orchestral musicians are the toughest critics.’
