Adrian Wilson (Oboe) with Sheffield's resident chamber musicians, Ensemble 360, present:
MUSGRAVE Niobe for oboe and pre-recorded tape
BRITTEN Six Metamorphoses after Ovid Op.49 (with film option)
BAX Oboe Quintet
Adrian combines his position as Principal Oboe of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra with his role in Ensemble 360. A captivating musician, he is one of the original members of Ensemble 360, and likes to return whenever possible!
Adrian will introduce his recital and its theme of modern portrayals of figures from Greek legends. Featuring Musgrave’s exquisitely beautiful dedication to the grieving Queen Niobe, the concert also includes Britten’s exploration of the great Roman poet, Ovid.
This concert also includes an opportunity for all smartphone and tablet owners to view Katie Goodwin’s Six Metamorphoses after Ovid film animation (commissioned by Music in the Round in 2013) while listening to Adrian perform the piece. Download the film in advance of the performance and watch it while Adrian plays.
