Wit and ingenuity are at the heart of Mozart’s wind writing for clarinets, bassoons and horns. The oboes join in to bring to life the dances at the Capulets ball, and the thrilling street brawls between the rival Veronese families in Prokofiev’s Romeo & Juliet Suite. The concert rounds off with Beethoven’s entertaining, well-crafted and virtuosic Octet. Delightful!
