Chamber Music Festival held over 10 days in October on Exmoor and Dartmoor.

Highlights include appearances from artists including harpsichordist Mahan Esfahani, violinist Henning Kraggerud, pianists Clare Hammond and George Fu, Stile Antico, violinist and The Festival’s Artistic Director Tamsin Waley-Cohen, recorder quartet Palisander and brass quintet Connaught Brass. The Festival has also commissioned a new song cycle by Freya Waley-Cohen which will explore Exmoor folklore through the poetry of Samuel Taylor Coleridge for baritone, Roderick Williams.

Exploring the theme from different perspectives, from the 24 hours of the day and the 24 keys of western music, to magic and dreamscapes, the bright sunlight of the baroque to the reflected moonlight of romanticism, and our connection to the Earth’s daily turn on its axis, this promises to be a Festival full of evocative experiences and storytelling from both internationally established and exciting up and coming artists.
