Bliss Wind Ensemble

Krommer Partita in C Op. 76 (20’)
Beethoven Octet for winds in E flat Op. 103 (23’)
Beethoven Symphony No. 8 in F Op. 93 (28’)

For this special concert which offers a fresh take on Beethoven’s writing, clarinettist Julian Bliss has hand-picked an outstanding group of soloists to form the Bliss Wind Ensemble. The concert opens with a work by composer and contemporary of Beethoven, Franz Krommer, best known for his witty and irrepressible music for wind instruments. This is paired with Beethoven’s Octet, a light and subtle early work (despite its opus number) which shows the influence of his teacher Haydn. The concert closes with an arrangement of the great Eighth Symphony; radical in form, yet full of joy and playful humour.


Pittville Pump Room

Pittville Pump Room is an elegant Grade 1 listed Regency building and perhaps the most famous example of Regency architecture in Cheltenham. Standing in regal splendour at one end of Pittville Park, the Pump Room is a monument to more than 100 years of fame that Cheltenham enjoyed as a Spa town.

The Festival’s morning recitals at the Pump Room are its continuing glory
