Kovács Homage to Richard Strauss
Richard Strauss Serenade in E-flat major, Op.7
Wind Section of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO) is excited to be returning to its home ground for a series of lunchtime concerts that will shine a spotlight on the different sections of the Orchestra.
Introduced from the stage, this informal 75-minute performance features the astounding wind players of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, with an exquisite selection of pieces. Mozart’s popular Serenade No.12 showcases some of his most masterful writing, alongside Richard Strauss’ own Serenade, prodigiously written when the composer was just seventeen. Lesser-known gems from Hungarian clarinettist Béla Kovács and Italian composer Gaetano Donizetti also feature alongside Nielsen’s genial Wind Quintet, which highlights the expressiveness of each instrument, and Valerie Coleman’s celebrated Umoja (Swahili for ‘unity’), which combines elegant melodies with infectious rhythms.
