PAVLOVA presents…  new arrangements for wind quintet

Listen to Sainsbury Cuban Dance no 1

Our new CD is now available to purchase. Email us or use this pavlova-presents-cd-order-form to buy a copy (£10 plus £2.50 postage).

The group’s flautist, Christopher Britton, is a gifted arranger. He has made arrangements for Pavlova over the years when a work, often originally for piano, has struck him as a particularly suitable candidate for wind quintet. Pavlova loves to perform these pieces and is proud to showcase Chris’s talents. A couple of delightful but little-known pieces by other arrangers have crept into this selection of Pavlova’s favourite concert pieces, all of which were originally written for other combinations of instruments.
