The Countess of Munster Musical Trust provides support to young musicians, for postgraduate study and beyond. We are grateful for the Trust’s support for this concert by Daniel Shao. He was born in 1995 and is currently studying for an MA at the Royal Academy of Music in London. Daniel studied music at St Catherine’s College, Oxford, from where he graduated with first class honours.

Daniel often plays as an orchestral flautist including as principal flute with the Britten-Pears Orchestra, Janus Ensemble and Oxford University Orchestra, and was co-principal of the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain and the London Schools Symphony. He was selected for the London Symphony Orchestra Academy 2015, and this year has successful auditioned for the Music Academy of the West and Lucerne Festival Academy.

Daniel has won prizes in several competitions including 1st prizes at the British Flute Society Competition Class B, International Award ‘Carl Reinecke’ in Italy (Junior Category) and 2nd prizes in the Bromsgrove and Ernest Bloch International Competitions. He was a wind finalist of BBC Young Musician 2014 and was the joint winner of the Felsenstein Leavers Award at the Purcell School.

Daniel has played concertos with orchestras including the Oxford Philharmonic, Amadeus Orchestra, and Kingston Chamber Orchestra, and has performed solo recitals at venues including Wigmore Hall, Cadogan Hall, Royal Albert Hall’s Elgar Room, and broadcast on BBC4.

Sheila Hancock, one of the country’s most popular actresses, opens the Festival in a rare big screen appearance in Edie, which opens the Festival on 22nd February. Released from the ties of a difficult marriage, she decides to fulfil a lifetime’s ambition and climb a mountain in the Highlands. Director Simon Hunter will be at the Festival to introduce the film and take questions.

Fans of BBC’s Love, Lies and Records will see another side to Mark Stanley’s acting range in Dark River. A far cry from his role as Registrar James/Jamie, Mark plays a young farmer trying to hold on to the tenancy after the death of his father played by Sean Bean, who is a brooding presence throughout the film.

Most poignantly of all, we have Sir John Hurt in his last leading role. That Good

Night tells the story of a writer with a terminal illness who hopes to put his affairs and family in order before he passes. Playing opposite him is Charles Dance and the interaction between these two giants of the stage and screen is magnificent.

Two documentaries stand out. Our Last Tango, screened at Rheged on Saturday 24th. It is a must for ‘Strictly’ fans, telling the story of two of Argentina’s most celebrated dancers,

illustrated by

stunningly choreographed routines from today’s young stars. That is followed on the Imax screen by Human Flow, Ai Weiwei’s remarkable and moving documentary on the global refugee crisis.

Coupled with some of the best films from 2017, some challenging documentaries, a few choices from years gone by and complemented by contributions from writers and academics, KFF once again promises to be an incredible weekend of film.
