A short concert featuring the wind players of Ensemble 360 - and preceded by an optional free concert talk.

This concert gives the wind players of Ensemble 360 a chance to shine, starting with the flute in Copland’s atmospheric evocation of the US landscape. Mozart’s Quintet is one of the best-loved works in the wind repertoire, full of his typical catchy themes shared across the ensemble. ‘Airs from Another Planet’, Judith Weir’s piece for piano and wind quintet, takes traditional Scottish folk tunes and reimagines them as if remembered in the future by a human colony on a distant planet.

PRE-CONCERT TALK, 4.15pm – 4.45pm
HELEN GRIME & JUDITH WEIR
FREE, please request tickets when booking for the 5.00pm concert
