DONIZETTI Sinfonia for Winds in G minor
MOZART Serenade No.12 in C minor, K.388
VALERIE COLEMAN Umoja
NIELSEN Wind Quintet, Op.43
KOVÁCS Homage to Richard Strauss
RICHARD STRAUSS Serenade in E-flat major, Op.7
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.
