Tickets for the 2010 Bath International Music Festival went on sale today.
Artistic Director Joanna McGregor has once again put together a hugely varied programme embracing all sorts of music and performance beyond the purely classical.
One of the most popular shows is likely to be a dramatised performance of Handel's Israel in Egypt in the unusual setting of the 2000 year old Roman Baths. It runs for four nights in June.
Chopin's 200th birthday is celebrated in a series of concerts which includes Stephen Hough with the B minor Sonata and a three hour Mazurkathon from Joanna McGregor herself.
A Kathleen Ferrier minifest includes a free exhibition of memorabilia and a special concert where contralto Hilary Summers portrays Ferrier's life in song.
And for those who fancy making their own music, ten pianos will be placed in 'secret locations' around Bath for anyone to have a go.
