‘Harmonie at the Operatic Table’ – music for eight winds

In 18th century Europe, the finest Harmonie wind players of the age entertained aristocrats as they dined in their finery, performed to townsfolk on the street or played for operatic noblemen who dared to invite the dead to supper…..

Join the Principal Winds of the Orchestra of Scottish Opera as they embark on a dangerous game of chance, a journey from ‘field to table to stage’ with an instrumental cast of exuberant revellers, fiendish villains and serenading lovers!
