Music in the Round

Birmingham

Ensemble 360

DVOŘÁK Sonatina in G Op.100 – arr. Galway for flute and piano
ARNOLD Divertimento for Flute, Oboe and Clarinet Op.37
ELGAR String Quartet in E minor Op.83

Dvořák visited and premiered many of his works in Birmingham. His carefree and cheerful Sonatina is one of his most popular chamber works, sharing similarities with his famous New World Symphony.

Sir Malcolm Arnold was invited to write all the test pieces for the Birmingham International Wind Competition in 1966. His Divertimento’s six movements are in turn humorous, lyrical, boisterous, nostalgic, playful and serene.

Perhaps this country’s quintessential composer, Elgar was the first ever professor of music at the University of Birmingham and premiered some of his more famous works there. His wife described the slow movement of this plaintive string quartet as “captured sunshine”.
