ENSEMBLE 360

(wind and string ensemble)

Strauss

Till Eulenspeigel einmal anders (arr. by Franz Hasenöhrl)

Kodaly

Duo for violin and cello, Op. 7

Beethoven

Septet in E flat major, Op. 20

Our season closes with a performance by Ensemble 360. Formed in 2005, Ensemble 360 has gained an enviable reputation across the UK for the quality and integrity of its playing, and also for its ability to communicate the music to a range of different audiences.

Strauss’sTill Eulenspiegel was originally written for full orchestra but has been wonderfully arranged for five instruments, and tells the tale of the rascally Till and his inevitable fate. The Kodaly duo is one of very few written for violin and cello. Written in 1914 it is imbued with Central European folk-style. The season ends with Beethoven’s wonderful Septet, which was probably the most popular of his compositions during his lifetime.
