This summer’s matinee performance includes the astounding wind players of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, with an exquisite selection of pieces.
The variety of instruments in the wind section provide a phenomenal range of sonorities, making for some glorious combinations and sound-worlds. The performance begins by showcasing some of Mozart’s most masterful writing in his popular Serenade No.12 and continues with Gounod’s sparkling Petite Symphonie, whose Andante shines a spotlight on the lyrical qualities of the flute. Dvořák even manages to sneak a couple of string players into the ensemble for his Wind Serenade. This captivating piece combines rustic Czech folk elements with marches, dances and a sprightly finale.
Please note, Gounod’s Petite Symphonie replaces the originally advertised Mendelssohn Konzertstück No.2 due to a change in performance schedules.
