Premier of woodwind quintet

February 13th, 2018 | Category: Music

Sunday, Feb. 11th, the Alterity Quintet premiered my On Reading Shakespeare at the Timucua White House.

In case you missed it, here are the two middle movements with titles and epigraphs:

II. Nocturne – “Soft stillness and the night become the touches of sweet harmony.” – Lorenzo, Act V, Scene 1 : Merchant of Venice

III. Serenade – “Let there be no noise made, my friends, unless some dull and favourable hand will whisper music to my weary spirit.” – King Henry IV, Act IV, Scene 5 : King Henry IV Part 2

A big thank you to:
  • Carrie Wiesinger – flute
  • Beatriz Ramirez – oboe
  • Natalie Grata – clarinet
  • Matt Tavera – horn
  • Christian Eberle – bassoon
and to Benoit Glazer for filming and recording.

    I heard about this event too late to attend. I’m delighted to hear this recording. Thank you for posting. What a beautiful exploration of the possibilities of the WW 5tet. I loved it, Stan.
