Omega Ensemble: Summer Winds II

Saturday 07 December 2019

Overview

The Omega Wind Quintet return for a second instalment of favourites in the picturesque Utzon Room.

Following on from their sell-out performance in 2018, Omega’s wind players present another summer afternoon of colour and bravura for winds. From the simple uncomplicated style of Damase to the surprising work of Berio, this is a concert of colour and bravura. Included also is the recently rediscovered and restored Quintet by Holst, and the premiere of a new work by Russo-Canadian clarinettist and composer Airat Ichmouratov.

Program:
Holst - Wind Quintet in A-Flat Major, Op. 14
Ligeti - Six Bagatelles for Wind Quintet
Damase - 17 Variations for Wind Quintet, Op. 22
Berio - Opus Number Zoo
Ichmouratov - New Commission [World Premiere]
