Ligeti Ten Pieces for Wind Quintet
Richard Strauss (arr. Brett Dean) Till Eulenspiegels lustige Streiche Op. 28
Beethoven Septet in E flat major Op. 20
Principal Players of Aurora Orchestra
Aurora teams up again with composer Anna Meredith, fresh from the successful launch of her album Varmints, which won the 2016 Scottish Album of the Year and Pitchfork magazine’s coveted ‘Best New Music’ status. The fearlessly genre-hopping Meredith creates a brand new work as the centrepiece of Aurora’s latest project for Wigmore Hall: an eclectic programme which also features Brett Dean’s sparkling chamber arrangement of Strauss’ Till Eulenspiegel’s Merry Pranks, and Beethoven’s much-loved Septet.
