Adam Walker flute Nicholas Daniel oboe Matt Hunt, James Burke clarinet Amy Harman bassoon Alec Frank-Gemmill horn James Baillieu piano Janacek Mladi (‘Youth’) Britten Movement for Wind Sextet Simon Holt Bagatelaranas Martinu Sextet for Piano and Winds This is the first concert from Adam Walker’s stellar line-up of leading wind players. Janacek’s spirited folk-tinged sextet is a sparkling curtain-raiser that contrasts with the teenage Britten’s dark-hued lyricism. Martinu’s sextet is a postcard from 1920s Paris, with the syncopations and bluesy harmonies of jazz and ragtime. Simon Holt’s title is a hybrid of the Spanish words for ‘bagatelle’ and ‘cobwebs’, reflecting the music’s playfulness and gossamer intricacy.
