Day seven of 2MF 2011
Since the last post, the Festival team spent a day in Widecombe-in the-Moor, but has been mostly based on Exmoor, running concerts in Dulverton and Dunster. On Monday, HRH The Countess of Wessex attended a sell-out concert with accordionist, Ksenija Sidorova and the Solstice Quartet – quite incredible. Then yesterday afternoon, the Two Moors Festival Wind and Piano Quintet performed their concert repertoire from their August 2MF Residency (read previous posts for further information on Residencies). The audience were spoilt even further with superb wind playing from Principal Oboe of the Berlin Philharmonic, Jonathan Kelly, joined by viola player, Matthew Hunter (also of the Berlin Phil) and Alison Procter. How often do we in the South West have the opportunity to hear such stunning and inspiring musicians in such intimate surroundings?
There are still three days left so head to the Festival’s website to find events happening in your area.
