It is a thrill to welcome the internationally acclaimed BCMG to the Wiltshire Music Centre for the first time, performing here as part of Corsham Festival 2009. One of Europe’s leading ensembles, the passionate commitment and infectious enthusiasm of their performances inspires audiences wherever they go. In this typically wide-ranging, varied and interesting programme, they include Schoenberg’s gorgeously expansive chamber symphony, arrangements by Birtwistle of music from the middle ages and renaissance, plus pieces by Donatoni, Woolrich and Barry—all irresistible masters of humour and fantasy.

Harrison Birtwistle : Hoquetus David
Franco Donatoni : Arpège
John Woolrich : Envoi
Gerald Barry : Piano Quartet No 1
Harrison Birtwistle : Ut Heremita Solus
Harrison Birtwistle : Some Petals from the Garland
Karlheinz Stockhausen : Dr K-Sextett
Arnold Schoenberg : Kammersymphonie No 1
