Dance of the Elves Opus 39 David Popper
Put a smile on your face with the lively mix of concertos for clarinet, bassoon and horn from the Scottish Chamber Orchestra.
From the cheeky optimism of the Clarinet Concerto in F minor, to the lyrical melodies in the Basson Concerto, this album of Weber’s wind music from the Scottish Chamber Orchestra has something for every music lover.
Weber makes a case for the bassoon as in impressive solo instrument in his colourful concerto. Tender passages followed by cheery rushing scales show off the composer’s sense of humour, characterised perfectly by the light-hearted orchestral playing.
It’s a lively listen, guaranteed to brighten up any afternoon and put a smile on your face.
