From Jason’s amazing Tumblr, a glimpse of the piece that opens our season next week:
Rehearsals start Thursday for this season’s first WCFSO concert, which itself begins with a selection of tunes from Henry Purcell’s delightful incidental music to A Midsummer Night’s Dream. While we will mostly stick to Purcell’s printed instrumentation of strings and trumpets I couldn’t resist sharing this improvised percussion breakdown over the Fairies’ Dance – a musical moment pulsing with imagination and rhythmic vitality, both hallmarks of William Christie’s sparkling interpretations.
