Two magnificent wind ensembles; three exhilarating masterpieces from the wind repertoire.

The SCO’s own eminent Wind Soloists join forces with the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland’s crack Stevenson Winds for an afternoon of high spirits and playful charm under conductor Gordon Bragg. Mozart’s colourful Divertimento, originally for three basset horns; Hindemith’s brief but eccentric wind quintet; and the Mozartian mellowness of Strauss’ good-natured wind symphony in all but name.
