The Royal Commonwealth Society's Windsong Quintet presents a concert exploring the Romantic roots of the wind quintet in the charming Little Music Room.

This presentation takes the listener on a journey from the earliest works for the wind quintet in Europe in 1821 right through to the contemporary sounds of The Americas. The program features charming quintets by German composers Danzi and Klughardt, and then moves to the inventive, virtuosic Three Short Pieces by French composer Ibert.

We then transport the audience to The Americas, where the quintet travels to bold new worlds and soundscapes. Ewazen’s expressively named Roaring Fork Quintet is filled with evocative, bubbling melodies drawing forth images of majestic mountain ranges, wide prairies and foaming rapids. The final journey is to South America with the jazz-infused Latin and African beats of Aires Tropicales by Cuban-American composer Paquito D’Rivera, sure to get the toes tapping.

After the concert stay and chat with the performers whilst you enjoy complimentary wine and cheese in the beautiful garden. A wonderful way to enjoy spring in the stunning Adelaide Hills.
