The MPO brass section is the main protagonist of this uplifting chamber concert. Arranged for quintet by John Iveson, the five Renaissance Dances by Tylman Susato display the delicacy and vibrancy of these instruments. Brilliance and technique shine in Pezzo per Quintetto d’Ottoni by renowned Maltese composer Joseph Vella.

The programme comes to a close with Fauré’s graceful Pavane arranged by Stephen Roberts, and Peter Franks’ arrangement Suite from Carmen, featuring some of the best-loved tunes from Bizet’s iconic opera.
