Zoi joins CySO for a joyful performance

Zoi is delighted for her first collaboration with the Cyprus Symphony Orchestra (CySO) on the “Sounds of Winds” concert and star soloist the principal trumpet Gareth Griffiths.

A programme dedicated purely to music for wind instruments. The concert presents a fine selection of three pieces composed between 1878 and 1974 featuring characteristic sound colours from the composers’ countries of origin: Antonín Dvořák (Bohemia), Gordon Jacob (England) and Jean Francaix (France).

A. Dvořák: Serenade for wind instruments, op. 44 - a magnificent work whose composition was sparked by a fascination of the Czech composer with one of Mozart’s wind serenades.

J. Françaix: Le Gay Paris for trumpet and wind ensemble inspired by the spirit of Paris, that is the exuberant enjoyment of life.

G. Jacob: Old Wine in New Bottles (1959) - based on four early English folk songs, to which the composer adds his own unique musical twist, thus making them all the more enjoyable and fun.
