Sarah Walker introduces music for winds, performed by the Haffner Ensemble, within the Georgian splendour of the Pittville Pump Room in Cheltenham.
Sarah Walker introduces highlights from the 74th Cheltenham Music Festival and performances given in the Georgian splendour of the Pittville Pump Room. Today, Nicholas Daniel’s Haffner Ensemble present a programme of music for winds including a dazzling arrangement of Ravel’s well-loved, Le tombeau de Couperin. They are joined by pianist Charles Owen to perform music by Beethoven that pitches a flamboyant piano part alongside richly inventive writing for oboe, clarinet, horn and bassoon.
Mozart (arr. Nicholas Daniel): Adagio and Allegro in F minor K594
