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.
