The Sextet in E minor from 1900 for mixed strings and woodwinds, which is recorded here for the first time, fills a gap in the repertoire. It was not until the start of our century that Helge Bartholomäus unearthed this work, composed towards the end of Holst's student days, in the British Library archives and published it. The Sextet has something of the lightness of a serenade, and in many passages sounds like a double trio for woodwinds and strings. A true find!
In 2011, the German-French cultural festival Arabesques was launched in Hamburg. With more than 50 events each year, it is now the biggest festival of its type in northern Germany.
The Ensemble Arabesques, which to begin with was active only during the festival, has now developed its own momentum and performs in Germany and abroad throughout the year. The ensemble is made up of musicians from the three major Hamburg orchestras – the Philharmonic State Orchestra Hamburg, the NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra and the Hamburg Symphony Orchestra. In varying combinations, the artists focus mainly on unusual musical projects ranging from baroque to modern. Little-known composers or works that have fallen into oblivion form a central part of the ensemble's work. German radio station Deutschlandradio Kultur has supported and promoted this commitment from the outset.
