SUNY Geneseo Wind Quintet

Join the Geneseo Wind Quintet on Sunday, February 3rd at 3:00pm in Doty
Recital Hall for our winter concert featuring “mid-century modern”
repertoire! The program includes two favorites from the wind quintet canon,
as well as a feature for our new members: Kathryn Scarbrough, flute, and
Andrew Brown, clarinet.

All of the pieces on the program were composed between the 1920s and the
1950s, but each demonstrates a different relationship with the themes and
concerns of Modernism. We’ll explore the “new objectivity” of Paul
Hindemith’s *Kleine Kammermusik*, composed in post-World War I Germany, as
well as the burgeoning experimentalism of the early *Six Bagatelles* by
György Ligeti and the unique blend of folk music and Modernist art music
aesthetics of Heitor Villa-Lobos’s *Chôros No. 2*. And we’ll hear how the
*Pastorale* by Amy Beach, written two years before her death, encapsulates
her lush late-Romantic-era sensibility in conversation with 20th-century
tonal developments.

Admission is free.
