 Yet again – all tonight’s pieces are new entrants to the Oxford May Music family. Our Administrative Director is going to have his work cut out writing this year’s programme notes! Not only new, but a tremendous variety, covering Baroque to Twentieth Century and geographically from Venice to Rio. The first two pieces are arrangements; the Vivaldi from the chamber orchestra to a string ensemble, the Beethoven from a wind ensemble. The latter was done by the composer himself to increase sheet music sales; the former is modern. Piazzolla brings swing to the second half of the evening and Schubert played by our own Salieca piano trio will also have your feet tapping.

Duration: 2 hours 15mins with interval
