THE PERFORMANCE

Swiss composer Frank Martin crafted something brilliant and ground-breaking in 1949 when he wrote the Concerto for Seven Wind Instruments. Performing the highly virtuosic solo parts are the Wind and Brass Principals of the TSO. The strings come to the fore in Respighi’s Ancient Airs and Dances, Suite No 3. Based upon melodies from Renaissance Italy, the rose-tinted Airs and Dances evoke an untroubled, bygone age.

Aux étoiles (To the Stars), by French composer Henri Duparc, provides a dreamy interlude. The concert concludes with Mozart’s famed ‘Haffner’ Symphony, the first of Mozart’s symphonies composed during his golden period in Vienna.
