RBSO Woodwind Quintet

French woodwind chamber music is given the spotlight in this selection of sublime works. Beginning with the ultra suave, silky sound world of Ibert, his tuneful vignettes set the scene for what will be a thoroughly enjoyable feast of music making. Poulenc’s sophisticated Trio includes a pianist, and features lush, sweeping Gallic harmonies. Saint-Saëns then ventures into more internationally oriented terrain with his captivating Caprice on Danish and Russian Airs, after which Suite Persane by Andre Caplét explores the possibilities of a double woodwind quintet (the ensemble increased to ten players), with much use of exotic sounding oriental modality. Usually only performed in Francophone countries, it will indeed be a special privilege to hear and enjoy this beautiful piece here in Thailand.
