About Arcadia Winds

About the concert
Wind quintets are known to bring out composers’ fun sides: their ‘Esprit’! Join Arcadia Winds for a selection of quirky, crazy and captivating favourites. The whole circus comes to town in Jean Françaix’s magical Wind Quintet No.2. György Orbán’s work is equally quirky, but in a Hungarian-folk style that contrasts beautifully with Françaix’s French flair. From Australia, new works by John Shephard and the winner of the 2021 Arcadia Winds Composition Prize prove we also know to how throw a great party.
Melbourne Recital Centre is committed to the safety of our artists, staff and patrons. When we reopen, a range of public health, hygiene and physical distancing measures will be in place. Click here to learn more.
