This year's Cheltenham Festival opened amid a riot of anniversaries. It's the 60th festival, Michael Berkeley's 10th (and last) as director, Birtwistle's 70th birthday, Holst's 130th, and so on and so forth. All this can get a little wearing and arithmetical - for instance, totting up the English composers who were born or died in 1934, or charting the 60 new works in the 71 events over 17 days (that's 4.176 events and 3.53 premieres a day). But luckily, a concert is still a concert, even when it takes place on the 4 July without an American work in sight.
