The first concert in a weekend of celebrations in Beethoven's 250th anniversary year.

A joyful showcase of Beethoven and more from the wind players of Ensemble 360. Beethoven’s Quintet for piano and wind is one of the great pieces in the wind repertoire, hugely enjoyable both to listen to and play. Writer of numerous wind quintets, Danzi’s knowledge of the instruments shines through in his melodic writing.

Inspired by Beethoven’s Quintet, Louise Farrenc’s Sextet adds the flute and is set in the style of a chamber concerto for piano and winds. A brilliant 19th century composer, she is now starting to achieve the recognition her outstanding music deserves.

Programme

  • Beethoven: National Airs for flute and piano Op.105 and Op.107 (selection)
  • Farrenc: Sextet in C minor Op.40
  • Danzi: Wind Quintet in B flat Op.56 No.1
