Enchanting Winds


This program mixes winds and piano in a variety of combinations, creating a kaleidoscope of instrumental colors. Sonatas by Saint-Saëns and Poulenc pair the piano with oboe and flute, and Taffanel’s quintet is a lively showcase for the winds. The concert begins with a Rossini wind quartet and concludes with Mozart’s inventive Quintet for Piano and Winds, a trove of extraordinary melodies, about which he said, “I myself consider it to be the best thing that I have written in my life.”
