Schubert Octet in D major D72
Gounod Petite Symphonie
Mozart Serenade for Winds in E-flat major, K. 375
Three elegant, delicate and sweet little works in one evening.
We move from Schubert’s Octet, a winning combination of joviality, delicate melancholy, technical finesse and rhythmic dash, to the warm stateliness of Mozart’s Serenade in E-flat major, culminating in Gounod’s Petite Symphonie, which exhibits a Classical clarity of form and phrase structure with shades of Romantic harmony and expressivity.
A glorious opportunity to see our Principals sharing the spotlight.
