Vincent d’Indy, the idealistic, serious and hard-working founder of Paris’s Schola Cantorum, allows himself to relax enjoyably in the melodiously pastoral piping of a wind septet in his Opus 50 song and dances. Rossini, after a phenomenally hectic career as an opera composer, sprinkles his long retirement in the environs of Paris with delightful pieces that he liked to refer to as the sins of his old age; from which Ian Munro has chosen a few for witty instrumental arrangement and conflation. Our players will certify, if asked, that James Crabb’s suite of unrelated pieces from Sweden, Belgium, Finland, Bohemia and Argentina, in plausible and enlightening partnership with his own spellbinding accordion playing, is a moral certainty to be a musical festivity in its own right. Verdi, whose 200th birthday belongs to 2013, includes so many reminders of the pleasures of Italian opera in his solitary and admirably composed string quartet that he will be a more than congenial musical guest in this program. With guest artists Lindsay Robinson (oboe), David Howie (clarinet), Robert Johnson (horn), Andrew Barnes, Tony Liu (bassoons) and James Crabb (accordion)
