Brasil Cycle at NOVA: Five Sopros - Metropolitana Soloists

14 March 2024

As part of the Brasil na NOVA cycle launched at the end of last year, this is an exceptional programme in which the Metropolitana Soloists perform a series of quintets by Portuguese and Brazilian composers from the period between 1956 and 2000.

The wind quintet brings together the flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, and horn. Like the string quartet, it was established as a chamber ensemble in the 18th century and has since been used in many different periods and cultures. As a result, it has an extraordinary repertoire, not only in terms of breadth and diversity but also in terms of quality.

Thursday 14 March, 19:00, NOVA rectory auditorium

Poster available here
