Wind players have claimed the great outdoors as their stage for centuries. Come and join us in the Winchfield musical tent for an outdoors-inspired programme of musical favourites. We will explore how nature has affected music for wind ensemble since Mozart’s time, when we would have mingled with the scent of flowers and the buzz of bees as we musically served the household garden parties and dances. And then let us take you further back in time to the Dark Ages, with jousting knights and hunting, before ending up with a tour of the West Country’s greatest folk tunes.

The Corvus Consort and Ferio Saxophone Quartet present a programme of Baroque and Renaissance music reimagined for choir and saxophones, including works by Johann Sebastian Bach, Johann Michael Bach, Johann Christoph Bach, Arcangelo Corelli, Henry Purcell, William Byrd, Orlande de Lassus and Heinrich Schütz.
New transcriptions and arrangements make use of the saxophone’s quasi-vocal timbre to blur the distinction between voices and instruments, intensifying the ensemble’s blend and creating a heightened sense of unity throughout the music. Alongside these new arrangements, the Corvus Consort sings Baroque and Renaissance works in their untouched forms, and the Ferio Saxophone Quartet performs items from their 2018 disc of instrumental Baroque transcriptions ‘Revive’.
