Wind of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

Taking centre-stage for this autumn concert are the astounding wind players of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, with an exquisite selection of pieces. Mozart’s popular Serenade No.12 showcases some of his most masterful writing, alongside Richard Strauss’ own Serenade, prodigiously written when the composer was just seventeen. Lesser-known gems from Hungarian clarinettist Béla Kovács and Italian composer Gaetano Donizetti also feature alongside Nielsen’s genial Wind Quintet, which highlights the expressiveness of each instrument, and Valerie Coleman’s celebrated Umoja (Swahili for ‘unity’), which combines elegant melodies with infectious rhythms.

Discover more about Valerie Coleman's Umoja and Donizetti's Symphony for Winds in our Composer Spotlight series.

Generously supported by the Cadogan Estate.
