September marks the end of a sumptious summer full of music festivals covering every kind of music – and Lebrecht’s photographers have been out there, busy shooting festivals in the UK and abroad – from Edinburgh to Henley, from Switzerland to Russia. These photos give context and atmosphere as well as actual production shots of a few of them.
The Proms, performed at the Royal Albert Hall, have still to reach their annual climax on 11th September at the Last Night of the Proms. Contact pictures@lebrecht for up to the minute photos.
