Names such as Sarah Connolly, Elisabeth Leonskaja, Alina Ibragimova and Iestyn Davies need no introduction to earnest music lovers. That these internationally famed artists appeared in remote places in the Southwest’s National Parks on Dartmoor and Exmoor is what sums up the Two Moors Festival that took place during October.
Over for another year, the Two Moors has built up a world wide reputation attracting audiences from all over the UK and from overseas. They stay in exclusive B&Bs, enjoy blustery moorland walks, relish the culinary delights of cream teas and pub food – and go to as many as eight or nine concerts.
This year’s programme saw thirty concerts taking place. They were an unparalled success. The festival’s 2006 commissioned opera, ‘Tarka the Otter’ saw a second outing in Exeter receiving a 4* review in the Times. Patron, HRH the Countess of Wessex attended the first night’s performance, clearly enjoying every moment. Chamber music and song recitals however, were dominant with Messiaen’s ‘Quartet for the end of Time’, Elgar’s ‘Sea Pictures’ and a string of Mozart’s violin sonatas at the forefront of an eclectic and dynamic artistic programme.
To write about the Two Moors Festival and what it does in detail would take longer than the Home Page will allow, but if you, as a reader, have reached this point in the introduction, why not be tempted to sign up on the mailist? You will receive a copy of the Newsletter in February followed by the brochure in June.
