No Strapline

Ensemble 360

Monday 30 April 2018

Vibrant music for wind instruments takes centre stage in Ensemble 360’s programme.

Anton Reicha’s Quintet is launched with a flourish featuring military motifs, syncopation and opportunities for all the players to demonstrate their virtuosity and Martinu’s Sextet successfully combines Bohemian influences and jazz elements.

In a lively conclusion to the concert, the irrepressible spirit of Janáček’s music written in his later years is vividly encapsulated in the title and style of Mládí (‘Youth’!).

REICHA Wind Quintet in E flat Op.88 no.2
SCHULHOFF Bass Nightingale for Solo Contrabassoon
KABELÁČ Wind sextet Op.8
MARTINU Sextet for Winds and Piano
JANÁČEK Mládí for Wind sextet

Approx running times:
7.30pm – 9.15pm
Interval: 8.20pm – 8.40pm
