Under the baton of Ian Brown, Huw will be playing Bach’s Violin Concerto in G minor, in a special transcription for soprano saxophone, as well as Milhaud’s virtuosic Scaramouche Suite for Saxophone and Orchestra.
The Henley Festival, established in 1982, takes place each year on the banks of the River Thames using adapted facilities from the previous week’s Henley Royal Regatta. Huw’s performance will be at 12 noon on the Floating Stage, with the audience seated in one of the grandstands overlooking the river.
As well as the works by Bach and Milhaud featuring Huw as soloist, the orchestra will also play music by Sibelius, Wagner, Tchaikovsky and Dvořák.
