WWCMF presents a program of stunning variety for our third Festival Series performance of the June 2019 season. The cast includes piano, violin, viola, cello, double bass, flute, clarinet, oboe, bassoon, horn, trumpet and trombone. These amazing artists perform with such outstanding ensembles as the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra (NY), Cleveland Orchestra (OH), Boston Modern Orchestra Project (MA) and the Seattle Symphony during the year. In June, we have them all to ourselves in Walla Walla.
With all these virtuoso musicians, there’s something for everyone. The Webern Concerto for Nine Instruments will challenge your sense of sonic order, Barber’s Summer Music for woodwind quintet will breeze through the Power House Theater like the summer wind and Wagner’s Siegfried Idyll will evoke an ancient forest replete with woodland critters. Spanning influences from serial music to American post-tonal harmony to jazz to unabashed romanticism, this program has it all. Join us for a concert sure to change your perception of what chamber music can be.
