Masterpieces by two great Romantics, Antonín Dvořák and Johannes Brahms, share the stage in a concert which focusses almost exclusively on their fabulous woodwinds.

A homage to Mozart, Dvořák’s Serenade in D minor is filled with Slavonic rhythms and displays the composer’s gift for graceful melodies. Brahms’s Serenade No. 2 in A Major, written for an orchestra without violins, is a warm, gracious work colored by the darker hues of our lower strings and woodwinds. In contrast, Heitor Villa-Lobos’s Bachianas Brasileiras No.5 is scored for eight cellos and soprano, whose lush wordless vocalise floats hauntingly over the cello choir.
