The two Hungarians not only played music, they were themselves the music – in every nerve – down to their fingertips.

R. Strauss: Suite in B-flat major, Op. 4

Liszt Academy Wind Ensemble
Conductor: Mátyás Antal

Especial good fortune is required to find a programme consisting of works purely for wind instruments in the programme plan of a concert season. The wind ensemble (contrary to the string orchestra with a distinguished past) is still frequently associated with the military band, brass band or at least as a group of amateur entertainers serving to enhance the atmosphere of fairs and parades, although the truth is that colourful, diverse wind harmonies have inspired, and continue to inspire, extraordinarily exciting creations. Full proof of this is available in the programme of the Wind Ensemble of the Liszt Academy, in which we hear performances of the Symphonies of Wind Instruments written in 1920 by Stravinsky on the death of Debussy and woven from pliable motifs and sound curtains, György Orbán’s 1995 piece, Pavillon Sinfonietta, and the Suite in B-flat major by the youthful Richard Strauss composed for 13 wind instruments.
