Windscape is Latest Chamber Series Offering April 20
April 20 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Created in 1994 by five eminent wind soloists, Windscape has won a unique place for itself as a vibrant, ever-evolving group of musical individualists, an “unquintet” which has delighted audiences throughout the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and Asia. Windscape’s innovative programs and accompanying presentations are created to take listeners on a musical and historical world tour, evoking through music and engaging commentary vivid cultural landscapes of distant times and places.
As Artists in Residence at Manhattan School of Music, the members of Windscape are master teachers, imparting not only the secrets of instrumental virtuosity, but also presenting a distinctive concert series, hailed for its creative energy and musical curiosity. The series offers the perfect setting for the ensemble to devise new “sometimes startling” programs and to experiment with new arrangements and repertoire combinations. Popular programs which have emerged from this process in recent seasons include The Roaring 20’s, The Fabulous 50’s, The Young Titan: Beethoven Comes to Vienna, and East Meets West: The Music of Japan and the Impressionists.
