Many people enjoyed the series of interviews held by Artistic Director, Jason Thornton each Wednesday during July and we now have an exciting new line-up of a further 5 talks, one on each Wednesday in September, again at 4.30pm.
Jason’s engaging and informal interview style produced fascinating insights into the musical and, at times, personal, lives of Elin Manahan Thomas, Ben Baker, Nicholas Marshall, Lauren Zhang, Sacha Rattle and Zeynep Ozcusa, whilst local interest came in the interview with Budleigh Literary Festival Director, Annie Ashworth.
Opening the next series of talks on Wednesday 2nd September the tables will be turned on Jason Thornton when he is interviewed by Festival Trustee, David Wright. Subsequent interviews in September include: Internationally renowned violinist and Artistic Director of the Two Moors Festival, Tamsin Waley-Cohen, a member of Stile Antico – there are “no finer singers of early music”, Sophie Langdon, one of Britain’s leading violinists whose career encompasses concerto performances and recordings with many major orchestras and Classic FM presenter Jane Jones.Click here to see the full programme.
