This week's On the Wind features In Wartime, written just prior to the start of the Iraq War in 2003, by David Del Tredici for Wind Orchestra. It is a striking work. That is followed by a trumpet concerto written by Jörg Widmann for the young wunderkind, Segie Nakariakov (now 45!!!) titled Ad Absurdum, a work that begins at a moto perpetuo pace and proceeds from there. And finally, the Octet for Horn, Piano, 2 Violins, 2 Violas, cello and double bass by Sir Arnold Bax.
