Welcome to the 2014 Canberra International Music Festival. Celebrating its 20th year, this year’s Festival will bring together many of Australia’s finest musicians and a wonderful array of acclaimed international artists to ensure a memorable program.

The European Union is delighted to support the prestigious Canberra International Music Festival in what promises to be a magnificent classical music event. I am particularly pleased that the opening night of the 2014 festival will take place on 9 May, a date when 500 million European citizens celebrate Europe Day all over the world.

This year’s theme, The Fire and the Rose, will explore the centenary of the commencement of World War I and the 75th anniversary of the outbreak of World War II through the works of composers who wrote while serving as soldiers on all sides.

A number of the EU Member States' Embassies are also involved in the festival, offering the Canberra community a unique opportunity of enjoying some remarkable pieces of work – many of which are in fact world or Australian premieres.

You will experience a rich and vibrant program of classical and contemporary music – a showcase of the familiar and the new. The Festival program will feature a number of major reflective works by Bach, Mozart and Brahms performed on period instruments.

In a year when we commemorate the centenary of the start of WWI, it is fitting that CIMF Director Chris Latham has put together a repertoire by European and other composers who at different times were affected or influenced by war and its difficult consequences.

Once again the award-winning Amazing Spaces series showcases Canberra’s unique architecture and landscapes and explores the connections between art and music. It’s a wonderful opportunity to experience what our city has to offer at its most beautiful time of year.

For Europe 2014 also marks the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall which led, ten years ago, to the historic enlargement of the EU to Central and Eastern Europe.

I encourage Canberrans and visitors to the city not to miss this year’s music program, and wish everyone involved all the best for the Festival’s 20th anniversary.

With my thanks to all who have made this event possible, I invite you to experience this wonderful festival of great music. H.E. Mr Sem Fabrizi Ambassador Delegation of the European Union to Australia

2014 will be the CIMF’s biggest program yet, and my last festival – my final gift to a city I love. On the surface the program is about war, but it is really about peace. The Great War gave birth to the modern world and its long shadows still hang over the present day. The loss of all the musicians who were killed or maimed on the battlefields of World War 1 ended up killing classical music. Whatever remnants managed to survive that catastrophe were wiped out by the next World War. It created a poverty of spirit. At its heart, where there should have been love, was fear and despair. It was a universal wound which defied healing. 100 years later, in response to these events, we will bring 100 composers’ lost works back to life. We will have them live again while their music lasts, and by hearing their music, we will experience, in a new way, what it is to lose such life and talent.

Katy Gallagher MLA ACT Chief Minister

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the 20th Canberra International Music Festival. Ursula Callus, the founder of the Festival, would be as delighted as we are with this milestone. It has only been achieved by enormous contributions from the ACT Government, Australia Council, corporate sponsors and the Canberra community in the form of concert sponsorship, volunteering, billeting and being our attentive and critical audience. This year our Artistic Director Chris Latham has put together a program that may challenge, but will certainly delight. The music, which he has researched for the past ten years, will commemorate the centenary of WWI and the 75th anniversary of WWII. Many of these concerts will be held in the Fitters' Workshop – built in 1916, one of the first buildings erected in Canberra.

The festival is entitled the Fire and the Rose, and speaks to a balance between passion and love, that ultimately informs wisdom. I am very grateful that 12 international missions are supporting this idea – 'that the time of making war is over'. I believe humanity has a chance to break this regular cycle of destruction – that there is nothing inevitable about resorting to militarism over diplomacy.

Sadly, this is Chris Latham’s last Festival. We have been very fortunate to have had such a talented Artistic Director and are enormously proud of what he has achieved for the Canberra community and Pro Musica.

This music speaks powerfully to life. My hope is it can inoculate us against war.

Dorothy Danta President, Pro Musica

Christopher Latham Director, Canberra International Music Festival

I encourage you to come and enjoy the 2014 Festival, and look forward to meeting you there.
