La Motte Classical Music Concert Programme

During the coming months, La Motte Estate in the Franschhoek Valley will be hosting a series of Classical Music Concerts.

La Petite 5ymphonie: Cardea Wind Quintet

La Petite 5ymphonie features well known music originally written for symphony orchestra that has been arranged especially for the woodwind quintet. The presentation of these works as chamber music allows the listener to become more intimately acquainted with the intricacies in the woven textures of the work, whilst still maintaining the energy and musical identity of the original larger work. The Cape Town-based Cardea Wind Quintet will perform a programme that includes Mozart’s Magic Flute Overture, Grieg’s Peer Gynt Suite and The Ritual Fire Dance by De Falla.
