The combined woodwind and brass of the RBSO are joined here by the superb young Polish cello solo Kacper Novak. Friedrich Gulda’s Concerto for Cello and Wind Orchestra was tailor-made for the famous cellist Heinrich Schiff, and reveals the composer to be one of the most significant cross-over pioneers of his time, incorporating overt jazz elements into his classical context. This is in stark contrast to the opening of this concert, where American composer Samuel Barber employs a sequence of transformations of the plain-song, Christe, du Lamm Gottes (Christ, Thou Lamb of God), which is also harmonised in J.S. Bach’s Cantata No. 23. Stravinsky’s Symphonies of Wind Instruments is again a big stylistic contrast, with ‘symphony’ in the title of this relatively short masterpiece, dedicated to the memory of Debussy, intended in the sense of "sounding together". Dvořák’s Slavonic style Serenade for Winds evokes the old-world atmosphere of musical performances in the castles of the Rococo period, where the worlds of the aristocracy and the common folk would merge.
