Poetic and pensive. Bold and brilliant. Silvery and soft.
Woodwinds reflect the moods of life in all its colours – often in just one breath. Prepare for an audacious masterclass as our Sydney Symphony woodwind family breathe life into three audience favourites.
With Ravel’s beautiful Le Tombeau de Couperin celebrating the memory of friends, the playful character sketches of Nielsen’s Wind Quartet, and Strauss’ cheeky depiction of Till, a prankster from German folklore, these works are “life” portraits infused with ingenuity and wit.
