Summer Season
Cape May Music Festival
June 7, 2018
Prevailing Winds

This concert features the vast array of colors of the woodwinds and brass.  Gounod’s charming Petite Symphonie is more a suite, filled with warm sounds and echos of southern France, while Mozart’s so-called serenade is a virtual symphony in its human pathos.  Dvořák gives us ripples of nature and rural life in its folk-dance forms in this program filled with melody, shimmer, and emotion.  

  • Charles Gounod––Petite Symphonie
  • Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart––Serenade No. 12 for Winds, in C minor, K. 388
  • Antonín  Dvořák ––Serenade for Winds, op. 44
