MANCHESTER CAMERATA WIND ENSEMBLE

THIS PERFORMANCE TOOK PLACE IN 2009 ZEMLINSKY Humoresque REICHA Wind Quintet in E flat, Op.88 No.2 ARNOLD Divertimento for flute, oboe and clarinet Gilbert VINTER Two Miniatures MILHAUD 'La Cheminée du Roi René' LIGETI Six Bagatelles HINDEMITH Kleine Kammermusik A varied and exciting programme of predominantly 20th century music for wind instruments. With the exception of Anton Reicha, a Classical composer and good friend of Beethoven, this whole programme explores the array of styles, moods and musical ideas that dominated the 20th century, from the lyrical nature of Milhaud’s La Cheminée du Roi Réné to the neo-Classical music of Hindemith. As well as the musical giants Ligeti and Arnold, known widely for their film music (Ligeti famously for the soundtrack to Kubrick’s 2001: Space Odyssey) as well as being important composers in their own right, this is a chance to hear musical gems by the lesser known Gilbert Vinter and Alexander von Zemlinsky. The concert finishes at approximately 9.05pm
