(ends approx. 12.40pm)

This is the first concert from Adam Walker’s stellar line-up of leading wind players. Janáček’s spirited folk-tinged sextet is a sparkling curtain-raiser that contrasts with the teenage Britten’s dark-hued lyricism. Martinů’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.
