UNIVERSITY WIND ORCHESTRA

THIS PERFORMANCE TOOK PLACE IN 2009 Kieran O’Riordan & Matthew Smith, conductors Claire Game, alto saxophone Malcolm ARNOLD English Dances Set 1 David BEDFORD Praeludium Fergal CARROLL Winter Dances Adam GORB Yiddish Dances Pedro ITURRALDE Pequeña Czarda Eric WHITACRE October In their first concert of the year, the University Wind Orchestra presents a programme shot through with the rhythms of the dance, accompanied by a little winter magic. Malcolm Arnold’s well-loved English Dances, by turns tender and invigorating, are contrasted by Eric Whitacre’s profound and moving tone poem October. Recent music graduate Claire Game is the soloist in Pedro Iturralde’s joyous Pequeña Czarda (little dance). Fergal Carroll’s Winter Dances bring a touch of seasonal flavour in a work described as ‘a sparkling enchantment, a delight’. Finally, Adam Gorb’s marvellous recreation of Klezmer music is a tour-de-force, mixing satire, sentimentality, pathos and tango, ending in a riotous ‘knees-up’ for all concerned! The concert finishes at approximately 9.30pm
