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.
