Meet the Musicians

Programme Information

MUSGRAVE Niobe for oboe and pre-recorded tape
BRITTEN Six Metamorphoses after Ovid Op.49 (with film option)

BAX Oboe Quintet

"Adrian Wilson enthralled, as ever, the singing notes dancing gracefully from his oboe."

Adrian combines his position as Principal Oboe of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra with his role in Ensemble 360. A captivating musician, he is one of the original members of Ensemble 360, and lived in Sheffield for many years with his wife and young family. He likes to return whenever possible!

Adrian will introduce his recital and its theme of modern portrayals of figures from Greek legends. Featuring Musgrave’s exquisitely beautiful dedication to the grieving Queen Niobe, the concert also includes Britten’s exploration of the great Roman poet, Ovid.

Film extra!

Today’s concert also includes an opportunity for all smartphone and tablet owners to view Katie Goodwin’s Six Metamorphoses after Ovid  film animation (commissioned by Music in the Round in 2013) while listening to Adrian perform the piece.

If you would like to watch the film on your device during the concert, please make sure you download it to your device in advance of the concert and bring your device with you on the day. Click here to download the animation (MP4 Format, 78MB)
