Klughardt Wind Quintet, Op. 79
Mozart (arr. Weigelt) Adagio in B flat major K411
Danzi Wind Quintet, Op 56, No 1
Arnold Three Shanties
Great music is best shared with friends, and the chemistry between the musicians in the Magnard Ensemble is rooted in their friendship. Join them as they share some of their favourite pieces for wind quintet, in a charming programme centred around an arrangement of Mozart’s Adagio on B flat major. Humour and delight are abound elsewhere in the programme, which opens with Zemlinsky’s sprightly Humoreske and Klughardt’s colourful Wind Quintet. The concert closes with Arnold’s Three Shanties, a whimsical arrangements of popular sea shanties with a playful homage to ‘The Drunken Sailor’ in the opening movement.
Audiences are welcome to bring a picnic to enjoy in the theatre’s lovely grounds after the hour-long concert. A bar with tea and coffee will also be available.
