Syrinx (baroque wind band): The Saxon Alternative

Syrinx (baroque wind band): The Saxon Alternative

Saturday, January 20, 2018 - 19:30

Telemann’s wind music reveals a fascinating mix of styles; perfectly balanced baroque dances and full-blown orchestral overtures rub shoulders with the rustic. The oboe and horn ensemble was a new phenomenon when Telemann was writing this music and he takes full advantage of the opportunity to experiment with these new sounds—milking the horn calls but also throwing up the very beautiful combination of solo horn and oboe d’amore.
