Event Details

Since forming their duo in 2016, saxophonist Huw Wiggin and harpist Oliver Wass have continued to develop and refine their programmes of music for this unusual pairing of instruments and have developed a reputation as warm communicators who draw audiences into their intimate and engaging performances.  There will be familiar tunes transcribed for saxophone and harp contrasted with an exhilarating new Sonata written specifically for this combination.

  • Vivaldi : Variations on ‘La Folia’
  • Debussy : Girl with the Flaxen Hair;  Arabesque no. 1
