The New Paths Music series of musical postcards celebrates the place which has inspired the festival and its artists from day one: the town of Beverley in the East Riding of Yorkshire. Curated by Artistic Director Libby Burgess, the series of short films is a true meeting of music and place.
In the third Postcards video released today, Libby is joined by cellist Leo Popplewell in a performance of Dvořák's Silent Woods ('Klid'): you can watch the video here.
This short film is inspired by Westwood, the pastureland encircling Beverley. From sunrise to sunset, Westwood offers spectacular views of the town - whether on a misty morning or in moonlit silhouette. The idea and hope behind it is that the postcard captures the tranquillity of this ancient space.
