The sonic array of a wind instrument chamber music concert is unsurpassable. Although we revel in the thunder of the modern piano and the warmth of the violin, the soundscape of combined flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, and horn—the classic wind quintet heard in this program—offers a rich tasting menu for the ear. Come hear CMS’s exceptional lineup of wind players tackle this demanding and rewarding repertoire.
