Academy of St. Martin in the Fields Wind Ensemble

Wednesday, February 7, 2024
No charge for Four Arts members

Members of the Academy of St Martin in the Fields team up to perform a swirl of works for winds and keyboard. In trios of Francis Poulenc, Heinrich Molbe, and Mikhail Glinka, pairs of wind instruments joust with the piano. Jean Francaix’s Divertissement is a light delight – a perfect warmup for Mozart’s Piano Quintet in E-flat, where the full group unites to showcase the brilliant ensemble work that the Academy is known for from their countless award-winning recordings.
