A tour-de-force program for five wind players plus pianist reveals the seldom-heard depth of the wind chamber music repertoire. Performing with the ensemble accuracy of a polished string quartet, these wind players display astounding chamber music skills, not the least of which is the coordinated breathing that combines delightfully disparate colors with razor-sharp precision. The wide selection of composers and styles further enhances this concert’s already unique appeal.
“CMS at the Meadows” will take place rain or shine at Pitney Meadows Community Farm, under the High Tunnel greenhouse, a large outdoor event space. Performances will all be 90 minutes long with no intermission.
