Cork Philharmonic Winds was founded in 2012 to give Cork-based wind, brass and percussion players the opportunity to perform original music of the highest quality written for wind ensembles and band. Featuring masterful euphonium player Gary Curtin, the typically varied and musical programme is bound to delight fans of fine wind music.

We open with the virtuosic “Gran Fanfarria”, originally written for the Venezuelan Brass Ensemble.

Gary takes centre stage for “Cantiphonia for Euphonium” by Bert Appermont, a cracking piece of music that showcases the lyrical and technical qualities of the euphonium.

The “L’Homme Armé Variations” takes a centuries old melody and remixes it for wind ensemble, taking in themes of war, dances and drinking songs along the way.

And we finish with “Armenian Dances” by Loris O. Chobanian, a lively set of Armenian folk songs and dances.
