  • Barber Summer Music
  • Françaix Wind Quintet No. 1
  • Janáček Mladi
  • Dvořák Wind Serenade, Op.44

It only takes a handful of players to create an explosion of colour. Tonight the CBSO’s renowned woodwind section whirl us around the world, from the Gallic wit of Jean Françaix to Samuel Barber’s long hot American summer and Leos Janáček’s youthful escapades. And then they all come together in Dvořák’s irresistible Wind Serenade. Its feet may be in the Czech countryside, but its eyes are on the stars.
