Arcadia Winds: Barber, Telemann, Knussen, Younan, Pärt & Mozart

Wed 2 November @ 18:00 - 19:00

$30 – $37

In this program, Arcadia Winds explore fantasy and invention. Opening with Samuel Barber’s seminal Summer Music, a wonderfully imaginative tone poem evoking the lazy, indolent feeling of that season.

Followed by three short fantasies spanning three hundred years, the ensemble begins with Telemann’s Fantasia for solo flute in A minor, a baroque dance suite in perfect microcosm. Oliver Knussen’s Three Little Fantasies is a set of quirky miniatures creating a whirlwind of sounds fit for the wind quintet. Followed by the World Premiere of Elizabeth Younan’s Fantasy No. 8 for solo bassoon, a tour de force written for Arcadia Winds own Matthew Kneale.

The program concludes with a spectacular arrangement of Mozart’s Variations on Ah vous dirais-je maman, which takes the familiar and reimagines it with his unrelenting genius.
