Music in the Round

The Combination

Ensemble 360

Presented at Kelham Island Industrial Museum

Part of the Music In The Round: May Festival 2013

HOLST Wind Quintet in A flat Op.14
ROSSINI Sonata for Wind Quartet No.4 in B flat
PAUL PATTERSON “Lazy Lawrence” from Westerly Winds Op.84 – for wind quintet
ARNOLD Fantasy for Bassoon Op.86
PAUL PATTERSON Comedy for Five Winds Op.14
JIM PARKER “Les Animaux” from Mississippi Five – for wind quintet

Continuing our celebration of John Parr and the bassoon, Ensemble 360 performs a concert in the spirit of Parr’s long-running Sheffield chamber music concert series – for which his wind ensemble The Combination performed – including Sir Malcolm Arnold’s virtuosic showpiece Fantasy for Bassoon.

The score of Holst’s Wind Quintet was lost for half a century, and only fully restored last year. It is written in a late-Romantic, pastoral style.

We also hear two pieces by Chesterfield-born composer Paul Patterson : the short fantasia ‘Lazy Lawrence’, based on a Dorset folk tune, and his humorous pastiche Comedy for Five Winds.

Events will also be taking place in the museum throughout the day. Click here for details.
