Event Details

4-7 October 2023


Freigeist – a state of being and a free spirit – source of all great art and the life blood of creativity!

We celebrate the geniuses who wrote and lived with FREIGEIST as their credo and gave us all the extraordinary music we will share with you. From the several meanings of the German term “Freigeist” our chosen interpretation is the simplest: the free spirit and romantic manifestation of all that is creatively unfettered, the opposite of material and manipulated. As we emerge from the curbs and restraints of the last few years we all long to express our humanity and connectedness.

What more inspiring pathways to this than the compositions of pioneering minds and spirits like Mozart and Stravinsky?

Join us this Autumn to experience the unique OCMF atmosphere in historic venues in Oxford. We are looking forward very much to you being part of this and seeing all our OCMF musicians and audience again!

Our featured artist is Julian Arp, whose photographs are featured in our programmes below. He is also performing as a cellist in the festival.
