From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Tilford Bach Festival was first held in 1952, following the creation of the Tilford Bach Society the same year. The Society and Festival were founded by Denys Darlow.

The principal venues for the Festival are All Saints Church Tilford, near Farnham, Surrey, and the Great Hall of Farnham Castle.

For the first two decades, performances at the Festival drew heavily on local musicians, amateurs as well as teachers and professionals; from the 1970s onwards, however, 'historically informed performance' came to dominate more and more, and amateur involvement gradually died out. Today the festival is an entirely professional event and specialises in performances of Baroque music using authentic instruments and orchestration.

Denys Darlow retired as Director following the 50th Festival in 2002; the current Music Directors are Laurence Cummings and Adrian Butterfield.
