Talented women composers feature in our Independent Spirits concert. Amy Beach was a prodigy, playing piano and composing at age four. Pastoral for wind quintet reflects her love of nature.
The Suite for Wind Quintet by Ruth Seeger is lively, buoyant, conversational music. Joan Tower wrote Island Prelude inspired by an oboist’s exceptionally lyrical playing. It is a rare example of a woodwind quintet that features one instrument as the soloist throughout the piece. Valerie Coleman is the resident composer and founder of Imani Winds. We’ll perform her Tzigane, an imaginative blend of gypsy jazz and indie classical with intricately shifting voices for the entire ensemble. In an homage to Samuel Barber, Jennifer Higdon’s Autumn Music portrays the colors of the season.
