Promenade Concerts

Over two evenings this week, Wells musicians performed vibrant promenade concerts in the stunning surroundings of Wells Cathedral. On Tuesday evening, brass and percussion musicians, along with guests from the woodwind department played the extraordinary Royal Fireworks Music, by Johann Friedrich Fasch, written for the wedding of Catherine the Great, with Elgar Howarth’s orchestration of Mussorgsky’s thrilling Great Gate of Kiev from Pictures at an Exhibition.

The following evening, Wells woodwind musicians, together with selected guests from across the whole music department, presented their programme which featured an ambitious performance of Fasch’s Royal Fireworks Music for nine each of oboes, natural trumpets and bassoons, plus three sets of timpani.
