Ian Hopkin, Curator

Haydn: London Trio No. 1
Mozart: Serenade No. 12 in C minor
Gounod: Little Symphony for Wind Instruments
Handel: Music for the Royal Fireworks

Handel’s original instrumentation of all winds and no strings for the Music for the Royal Fireworks is the inspiration and feature of this Baroque and Beyond program. Doing away with the quintessentially Baroque sound of the string section, this concert shines a light on music for winds and brass during the transition from the Baroque to Classical periods.
