From $20.00

The symphonic wind ensemble paints rainbows through the use of modern orchestration and novel combinations of instruments. Similarly, how light interacts with the landscape affects the perception and understanding of the environment, depending on the position and time of day. These combinations provide different opportunities to experience beauty from the world and the symphonic wind ensemble.
Referencing poetry, both Christopher Sainsbury's The magic of this dawn and David Bedford's Sun paints rainbows on the vast waves are abstract yet evocative, describing the interaction of the sun and the landscape. In the more literal sense, Yukiko Nishimura's Smiling after the rain also seeks to describe the rainbow in musical terms and the feeling of happiness that comes from this natural phenomenon.

Simón Pazos Quintana joins AWO to perform the extraordinary Capriccio, written by Czech composer Leoš Janáček who wrote it for pianist, Otakar Hollmann, who lost the use of his right hand in World War One.
