These are informal gatherings where David Yang brings a wide range of music, from, for example, Haydn and Mozart to Beethoven, Britten, Debussy and Bartok. He chats with the audience and a consensus emerges about what the musicians will play – and then they do, sight-reading the pieces together without any rehearsal! It’s fun – but they do take the music seriously, and it’s extraordinary to witness. This is the sort of thing that happens all the time among musicians, but much more rarely in front of an audience.
The musicians involved in the whole festival are:
Amarins Wierdsma, violin (Holland)
Sara Trickey, violin (UK)
David Yang, viola (USA)
Bertrand Raynaud, cello (France)
Judith Hall, flute (UK)
Andy Williamson, Saxophone (UK)
Tom Vignieri, Composer-in-Residence (USA)
(though not all are in every performance)
This is part of Ashburton Chamber Music Festival (ACMF) 2022 – a series of 5 concerts, 1 family concert, 2 hausmusiks, a panel discussion introducing the musicians and a lecture, in and around Ashburton from 14 – 24 July 2022. For full details see ashburtonarts.org.uk/acmf
