The Wye Valley Chamber Music Festival has grown into a truly important event in the cultural calendar of this beautiful area. Each year the festival stages chamber music concerts of exceptional quality in intimate and historic venues. It is currently directed by Daniel Tong with fellow pianist Simon Crawford-Phillips.
Wye Valley Chamber Music Festival has retained a unique character. It was founded with a passion that still infuses the festival and is being passed unto the next generation of chamber musicians through the Summer Residency,
The standard of musicians Wye Valley Chamber Music Festival attracts is extremely high. During the festival the musicians live and work together in Treowen Manor, a Grade 1 listed manor house which provides a wonderfully atmospheric home for the festival. Many of the musicians return every year, purely for the pleasure of rehearsing and playing the chosen repertoire.
“Some of the most special moments of my musical life have been spent at the Wye Valley Festival. The chance to spend time with great music and wonderful artists in private, and to hear masterpieces performed with such understanding and commitment, is priceless. The enormous amount of work that has gone into making Wye Valley Chamber Music flourish is always repaid with the pleasure and inspiration it gives to others, musicians and audience alike.”
Daniel Tong (artistic director)
