Buffalo Chamber Music Society continues with Carol Wincenc, New York Woodwind Quintetby jmaloni
The 90th season of the Buffalo Chamber Music Society continues on Tuesday, Nov. 12, with a performance by Buffalo's own Carol Wincenc and the New York Woodwind Quintet. The concert begins at 8 p.m. in the Mary Seaton Room of Kleinhans Music Hall and will preceded at 7:15 p.m. by a "Chat With the Artists" hosted by WNED-FM personality Peter Hall. The program includes works by Reicha, Pavel Haas, Monteverdi, Villa-Lobos and Hindemith.
The quintet will also conduct a master class, open to the public, at Kleinhans Music Hall at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 12, the same night as the performance. This class is part of the Buffalo Philharmonic's "Masterclass" series, and is in partnership with the Buffalo Chamber Music Society.
One of the world's most respected and acclaimed flutists, Wincenc will perform with her colleagues from the New York Woodwind Quintet. For almost 60 seasons, the quintethas maintained an active performance schedule in the U.S. and abroad, while also teaching the next generation of woodwind performers. The quintet has commissioned and premiered more than 20 compositions, some of which have become classics of the woodwind repertoire. They include Samuel Barber's "Summer Music," and quintets by Günter Schuller, Ezra Laderman, William Bergsma, Alec Wilder, William Sydeman, Wallingford Riegger, Jon Deak, and Yehudi Wyner.
Tickets for this concert are $20 ($10 for students), and may be purchased online at www.bflochambermusic.org or at the door. For more information, visit the website or call 716-462-4939.
