Regular supporters of our orchestral concerts will be well aware of the very fine quality of the wind players in our Festival Chamber Orchestra.

 

In this concert four of them join Iain Ledingham in Mozart’s great Quintet for Piano and Wind and a selection of solo pieces to display the wide-ranging colours of their instruments. 

 

The Quintet was composed in 1784 in Vienna. Shortly after the premiere, Mozart wrote to his father that “I consider it to be the best thing I have written in my life. “
