Rachmaninov (arr. Farrington) Suite no. 2                   World Premiere


It’s hard to imagine a more star-studded group of wind players than the Orsino Ensemble, led by Adam Walker on a mission to showcase the depth and versatility of the wind chamber repertoire. They open their festival residency by joining pianist Katya Apekisheva to play Russian chamber masterpieces, beginning with a Trio which bears the inscription ‘I have known love only through the unhappiness it causes’, and ending with the premiere of new arrangement, commissioned by the Ryedale Festival, of the glorious and life-affirming suite Rachmaninov composed on emerging from mid-life depression.
