Sydney Omega Ensemble is thrilled to be joined by the saxophonist and winner of the 2011 ABC Symphony Australia Young Performer of the Year, Nicholas Russoniello. Unlike the string quartet, with its warm, rich and homogenous sound, the instruments of a wind quintet contrast dramatically from each other in terms of playing technique and tone colour. This concert explores the wind quintet repertoire from French, German and Czech composers including a new sextet for Wind Quintet and Saxophone by New Zealand bassoonist and composer Ben Hoadley.
Featured non-Australian music: Wind Quintet No. 1 - FRANCAIX, Scaramouche for Saxophone and Wind Quintet - MILHAUD, Wind Quintet in E flat major, Op. 71 - BEETHOVEN, Mladi - JANACEK
