Quintet for Piano and Winds in E flat major, K. 452
Summer Music, Op. 31
Wind Quintet, Op. 43
The Soloists of the Oxford Philharmonic
Marios Papadopoulos piano
Marios Papadopoulos is joined by The Soloists of the Oxford Philharmonic for an evening of summer music. Shortly after the premiere of his Quintet for Piano and Winds in E flat major, Mozart wrote to his father 'I myself consider it to be the best thing I have written in my life.' In a musical evocation of the promise of long summer evenings, Samuel Barber’s Summer Music, his only chamber composition for wind, sits alongside Danish composer Carl Nielsen’s refined Wind Quintet.
Concert ends at approx 9.05pm.
