September 8 – Zephyrus Woodwinds
Come hear the 20th century’s answer to classical strings: the excitement and power of the modern woodwind quintet. Brash and spirited, Zephyrus Woodwinds sets out from the port of the Classical era’s string quartets to embark on the 20th century’s free-spirited excursions, using modern instruments from the center of the orchestra (flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon and French horn).
Five long-time friends who are veterans of symphonies, opera, chamber and regional orchestras, revel in sharing their favorites scores from a variety of classical, opera, and world folk sources. From the avant garde to the lyrical, disruptive to pastoral, Latin folk and American hymnody, Zephyrus Woodwinds will be highlighting lauded composers who are not celebrated enough, performing a multi-cultural array of works, including by two contemporary female composers. The pieces will sing the bluesy tones of Summerland, dance the Cuban Danzón, explore medieval miniatures written for a 1939 film, celebrate the spirit of Kwanzaa, and visit an American Methodist Meeting House. Some works may be a surprising bravura, a colorful stroll on a busy boulevard, a peppery dance, or a wistful gambol, and you may find yourself greeting an unexpected friend. It will definitely be an adventure to relish and share.
