Duels and Dances showcases the exotic, rarely performed Persian Suite by French composer Andre Caplet, for wind secret. Oboist Jasper Ly joins Orchestra 21 for the Australian premiere of Duels & Dances by American composer James Stephenson, which showcases the dexterity, flamboyance and spectacle of the oboe and cor anglais. Brahms’ epic first orchestral Serenade is his first full-length exploration of writing for an orchestra before he dared to compose a symphony.
