Tickets are now available for the concert, which takes place at Stratford Play House and will be the Galliards’ first public performance since the coronavirus lockdown.
Their programme balances short works for wind quintet by Percy Grainger, Cecilia McDowall and Eugène Bozza against longer multi-movement works. Mozart’s Quintet in C minor is a cleverly-retrospective construction by Mordechai Rechtman based on two of Mozart’s pre-existing works, and Jean Français’s Wind Quartet, written when he was just 21, is scored for Flute, Oboe, Clarinet and Bassoon.
The Stratford-on-Avon Music Festival will take place from 5th – 8th October and will feature an array of world-class performers, including three artists from the Tashmina roster. This will be a wonderful opportunity to support the performing arts at a very challenging time, and to experience live music with all necessary social-distancing precautions in place.
