About The Music

Following on from their sell-out performance in 2018, Omega’s wind players present another summer afternoon of colour and bravura for winds. From the simple uncomplicated style of Damase to the surprising work of Berio, this is a concert of colour and bravura. Included also is the recently rediscovered and restored Quintet by Holst, and the premiere of a new work by Russo-Canadian clarinettist and composer Airat Ichmouratov.
