Evening Concert: Forces of Nature

Elder Conservatorium Wind Orchestra
Luke Dollman

Holst First Suite in E-flat, Op. 28 No. 1
Paul Hart Circus Ring
Bizet arr. Takahashi Carmen Suite

Gustav Holst’s First Suite for wind orchestra is a masterpiece of the concert band repertoire, full of colour and broad lyricism. Takahashi’s splendid arrangement of Bizet’s beloved Carmen Suite provides a dramatic operatic close to the program, with Paul Hart’s light-hearted Circus Ring serving as a delightfully cheeky palate cleanser. Concert duration: 60 minutes
