  1. Sonata for flute and piano - Francis Poulenc
  2. Summer Music, for wind quintet Op 31 - Samuel Barber
  3. Quintet in E flat for piano, oboe, clarinet, bassoon and horn K 452 - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
  4. Fantasia No 3 in D minor K 397 - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
  5. Sextet for piano and wind quintet Op 100 - Francis Poulenc

Conway Hall regulars, the ‘Fibs’ present a programme bringing together winds and piano, from Mozart to Poulenc. Kathron Sturrock (piano) opens the second half of the concert with Mozart’s brooding, yearning D minor Fantasy, offering a complete contrast to his only work for piano and winds, the great E flat quintet.

Kathron Sturrock and her colleagues will return to the stage after their performance, for a post-concert question and answer session, offering the opportunity to ask the musicians questions about all elements of the rehearsal and performance process.

The Fibonacci Sequence has long been admired as one of this country’s most distinguished chamber ensembles and in 2019 they will be celebrating their 25th anniversary. They are regular contributors to BBC Radio 3, and the ensemble members appear at the world’s leading festivals and venues – most of them are also on the faculties of leading conservatoires in the UK and abroad. A trio of violin, trumpet and piano recently toured China in a programme of concerts and workshops, and appearances this year include a visit to the Shaldon Festival, two concerts at the 40th Anniversary of the Petworth Festival, along with our return for the fourth time to the Buxton Festival.

Pre-concert recital | Hiro Takenouchi, 5:30pm in the Main Hall

Explore the journey of Mozart’s life from young prodigy to the epitome of classical music, as Hiro Takenouchi continues his series of performing all of Mozart’s sonatas for solo piano, leading up to his finale concert on April 28th.

Mozart Piano Sonata No.2 in F K280
Mozart Piano Sonata No.8 in A minor K310

“Perhaps the most celebrated 'sonata-thon' is the monumental series by Beethoven. I have never done it myself, but have heard reports from those who have, about the discovery, the mental journey, the spiritual progress, the journey of the man himself, and so on. I have a sneaking suspicion and a somewhat sanguine wish that I might find the same shining wonder in all the sonatas by Mozart. Although we know that his skills as a composer matured, and he certainly changed his language to suit the evolving musical fashions, I want to test this theory by playing them all, to find the unchanging and sparkling spirit of a man preserved in all the sonatas.

I have now lived longer than Mozart did. Not that this gives me any right or superior insight into his music, but it is an odd feeling that I am in a position to look back at all the ages at which Mozart wrote these 18 works. If I have time, I might endeavour to play the Beethovens, Schuberts, or even the Haydns too!”

(Words by Hiro Takenouchi)
