NEXUS Reed Quintet, an innovative woodwind ensemble from Switzerland, makes its UK debut for the Swiss Ambassador’s Award Concert: an annual showcase of talented musicians with a classical and contemporary repertoire.
The quintet brings together five reed instruments: oboe, bassoon, saxophone, clarinet and bass clarinet. Its unique programming, fresh and in-depth interpretation, precise interaction and youthful enthusiasm fascinate audiences and open up new dimensions in chamber music.
An exclusive programme has been put together with special arrangements of Elgar’s 'Enigma Variations', Rameau’s 'La Triomphante' and the UK première of 'Night Snow with Wolves' by Swiss composer Stefan Wirth (b. 1975).
