Chamber music concert - part of Wooburn Festival  (www.wooburn.com)

BRITTEN  Simple Symphony
GOUNOD  Petite Symphonie
GABRIELI Music for Brass

WMSO is pleased to present its first chamber concert, comprising pieces for  main sections of the orchestra:  Strings, Wind and Brass - and from widely different music eras.

Britten's Simple Symphony for strings is one of his earliest pieces, written when he was only 20 and, reworking some tunes that he had written as a child, completed in 1933.   Gounod's Petite Symphonie is scored for a nonet of wind instruments. It was written late in his life around 1885 and is full of wit and musical maturity.  Gabrieli wrote a wide range of religious music during his life (1557 - 1612), and was very influential as Baroque music was developed and established.  His brass ensemble music is particularly well known.
