We are delighted to welcome the wonderful Cavendish Winds for the second concert in our 2018/19 season. The award-winning wind quintet, formed at the Royal Academy of Music in 2014, has performed in concerts, educational projects and competitions throughout the United Kingdom and abroad, and is establishing a reputation as one of the country’s leading chamber ensembles. Highlights include recitals at the Wigmore Hall, St Martin-in-the-Fields, Saffron Hall, the Kings Place Festival, and a private fundraiser event performance for the Elton John AIDS Foundation. Cavendish Winds are Concordia Foundation Artists, were finalists in the 2016 Royal Overseas League competition, and are recipients of the Tunnell Trust Award 2017-18. The quintet is delighted to have been selected as Making Music Artists for 2019-20.

The quintet has planned an imaginative programme with many of their best-loved pieces based on song. In Vaughan Williams’ Vocalises the wordless voice is replaced by the flute. In other pieces the connection is more subtle, harking back to a composer’s previous choral work or to their cultural heritage through folksongs. The quintet is also excited to be giving the London premiere of local composer James Moriarty’s Softly Softly, commissioned in 2017 for a tour of Scotland, which offers a more modern take on the idea of bringing popular song into the concert hall.
