Royal Northern Sinfonia Wind Quintet

A charming Chamber concert with a riot of colour and emotion!

9th February 2023 - 7:30pm - 9:30pm


Maybe it’s a national fascination with the weather, but British composers have always had a way with wind instruments. When he wrote his Wind Quintet, Gustav Holst seemed to pull melodies out of the air of the English countryside; Arthur Bliss – a survivor of the trenches – finds dark emotions when a clarinet joins forces with a string quartet. Malcolm Arnold, on the other hand, simply puts five wind players together and throws a party!

The RNS’s own players take centre stage in a riot of colour and emotion and rediscover an exuberant mini-masterpiece by the suffragette composer Ethel Smyth.

Ticket offer: £5 for under 30s, including booking fee.
