Bringing the Festival to you!
In this changing world we find ourselves in, and with no Festival to offer you this year, we've turned our attention to bringing the Festival experience to you...digitally. Over the next 12 month we will share a range of video stories with you - some will showcase past Festivals, some will chat with artists, others will feature the beautiful location that our Festival takes place in. And all will include beautiful music - using recordings of past Festival concerts, with thanks to ABC Classic. So sit back, relax and enjoy some AFCM highlights.
AFCM Video Story - Musical Memories
This first video shares a variety of images from the 2019 Festival with music from the Sunday night church concert - a beautiful piece by Charles Koechlin, Épitaphe de Jean Harlow, Op.164 and performed by Amy Dickson (saxophone), Sally Walker (flulte) and Charles Owen (piano). Enjoy!
Whiling away the hours during the pandemic has enabled us all to listen to more music. So we’ve created an AFCM Spotify account so that we can share a few playlists. We'll bring you more over the coming months, but here's our first one:
AFCM Artistic Director Playlist - this is our Artistic Director Kathryn Stott’s ‘go to’ music selection – of course there’s some Fauré in there, but also some Yo Yo Ma, Silk Road Ensemble, Tine Thing Helseth (who performed at AFCM in 2018) and a piece by our favourite quartet in residence, the Goldner String Quartet.
