Live music returns to the Two Moors Festival

The Two Moors Festival, which presents music events in venues across Dartmoor and Exmoor, was founded in response to the Foot and Mouth crisis which was devastating the area. This year, as the festival approaches its 20th anniversary, it is facing another crisis. In response, the festival is offering two weekends of concerts with limited, socially distanced audiences performed in venues on Dartmoor (26-27 September 2020) and Exmoor (2-4 October 2020).

This year is also the first year that the festival has been under the artistic directorship of violinist Tamsin Waley-Cohen, who was one of the Young Musician Competition winners in the first festival. Concerts at the festival will include the Albion Quartet in final quartets Brahms and Beethoven, cellist Laura van der Heijden in Bach's Cello Suites, pianist Elisabeth Brauss in Scarlatti, Beethoven, Mendelssohn and Chopin,  tenor Nicky Spence and pianist Christopher Glynn in Schubert's The Fair Maid (Die schone Mullerin in Jeremy Sams' new English version), and jazz from Misha Mullov-Abbado.

Full details from the festival website.
