Winchfield Festival: Hampshire

13 August | 6:00 pm

The Corvus Consort and Ferio Saxophone Quartet present a programme of Baroque and Renaissance music reimagined for choir and saxophones, including works by Johann Sebastian Bach, Johann Michael Bach, Johann Christoph Bach, Arcangelo Corelli, Henry Purcell, William Byrd, Orlande de Lassus and Heinrich Schütz.

New transcriptions and arrangements make use of the saxophone’s quasi-vocal timbre to blur the distinction between voices and instruments, intensifying the ensemble’s blend and creating a heightened sense of unity throughout the music. Alongside these new arrangements, the Corvus Consort sings Baroque and Renaissance works in their untouched forms, and the Ferio Saxophone Quartet performs items from their 2018 disc of instrumental Baroque transcriptions ‘Revive’.
