Pre-concert talk with David Bednall at 6.45pm
Celebrating the coming of spring, this concert features virtuosic music for wind ensemble from across the centuries. At the heart of the programme is Mozart’s three-movement Quintet, scored for piano, oboe, clarinet, horn and bassoon. Shortly after the premiere, Mozart wrote to his father that “I myself consider it to be the best thing I have written in my life.” 130 years later, Ravel wrote his homage to friends lost in the First World War, with each of the six movements dedicated to a different person. The programme is completed with Shostakovich’s famous Waltz and Malcolm Arnold’s imaginative and colourful Sea Shanties.
