Classics the Digital Way

Atlantic Sinfonia Winds presents music for wind sextet – 2 clarinets, 2 French horns and 2 bassoons from both well-known classical music composers and more obscure ones. The great Beethoven is represented by his Sextet Op.71 which displays his melodic invention and his light-hearted side. W.A. Mozart’s ability to create timeless melodies is evident in three arias from the opera ‘Magic Flute’ arranged by the bassoonist, Stumpf. And finally, a fresh and vibrant and sometimes flashy romp through the Bohemian countryside by the composer Druschetsky, a prolific writer of music for winds and an oboist himself.
