Festival Series 3 is a veritable potpourri of great music. What makes a good potpourri? I think a combination of something sweet, something exotic, something familiar, and something savory balanced in perfect proportion. Here’s an example, brought to you by the parfumerie of WWCMF.
Sweet: Poulenc, Sextet for piano and winds, Op. 100
Exotic: Mackey, Indigenous Instruments for piano, violin, cello, flute and clarinet (1989)
Familiar: Mozart, String Quartet in E flat, K. 428
Savory: Copland, Quiet City for trumpet, english horn and strings (1941)
Smells good to me!
Artists: Sarah Brady, flute; Rodger Burnett, horn; Timothy Christie, viola; Christina Dahl, piano; Billy Ray Hunter, trumpet; Norbert Lewandowski, cello; Christina McGann, violin; Stephen Miahky, violin; Philip Payton, violin; Paul Rafanelli, bassoon; Maria Sampen, violin; Kevin Schempf, clarinet; Sally Singer Tuttle, cello; and Dan Williams, oboe/english horn.
