DONIZETTI Larghetto per fiati

MERCADANTE Quartet in C minor Op.50 No.2
PLATFORM 4: New Commission
ROSSINI Overture to William Tell

Rossini is heard at his most playful in this delightful collection of wind quartets and, even without voices, he captures the essence of Italian opera. A short suite of pieces for wind instruments, by members of Sheffield’s professional composers collective, Platform 4, has also been specially commissioned to complement the Italian flavour of the occasion. And as a Sunday afternoon treat, they’re all served up with tea or coffee, and cake!

Refreshments are included in your ticket price. Doors open for refreshments at 2.15pm.

Concert generously supported by David Megginson and Vivien Whitaker in celebration of their significant birthdays.
