We’re being awfully good to you this year here at the Two Moors Festival. Not only do we have an amazing programme for the main two-week event in October – with the focus on anniversaries, culturally and historically – but we’re also putting on a couple of free concerts in September, with musicians of the highest calibre coming down to Devon.
On September 16th, 17th and 18th in Dulverton, Ashburton and Hatherleigh respectively, the Dionysus Duo – oboist Caroline Adie and pianist Suling King – will be taking to the stage in various churches to play a programme including Rachmaninov’s Elegy, Chopin’s C minor prelude, Albinoni and Debussy.
The two met as pupils at the Purcell School of Music in 2002. On leaving the school in 2004, they attended King’s College London together where they read music and also attended the Royal Academy of Music. They formed Dionysus Duo in 2010, but started performing together long before at King’s College London and in concerts in the south-west of England.
Their repertoire ranges from familiar composers such as Bach and Schumann to the lesser-known
Kalliwoda and Rubbra. Both award-winning artists in their own right, Suling and Caroline have
appeared in concerts all over the globe, including the Middle and Far East and Europe, and also
closer to home at Cadogan Hall, Wigmore Hall and St James’ Piccadilly so you know you’re in for a bit of a treat, and the bright and cheerful programme means that even if your friend doesn’t know as much about classical music as you, they’re still sure to have a wonderful time.
If you want to come along and listen to Caroline and Suling play for free, all you have to do is bring someone in your social circle who has never heard of the Two Moors Festival along with you
