So tonight, in addition to the cor anglais – with a performance of Manuel de Falla’s Ritual Fire Dance – Catherine has uncovered some lyrical oboe music from Richard Strauss, a beautiful romance for bassoon by Elgar, Mozart’s tranquil clarinet quintet, a famous work for flute by Bach and an utterly mesmerizing piece for saxophone.
