Wye Valley resounds to chamber music
Highlights of the 2012 Wye Valley Chamber Music Festival, from January 14 to 22, include an opening Saturday Schubertiade at the Bishop‘s Palace in Hereford, with the Trout Quintet and the song cycle, Die Winterreise.
The festival then celebrates the chamber music of Elgar at the picturesque St Briavels Church and the second weekend includes Discovery Day, always the festival’s hottest ticket, at Treowen Manor near Monmouth. The finale at Helen’s Manor near Ledbury features Hungarian and gypsy-inspired music and there’s a choice of pre-concert talks.
The Kreisler Quartet will be the first participants in an exciting addition to this year’s festival – the resident Quartet Scheme, a new project for young musicians.
