Annotated Bibliography of Double Wind Quintet Music
Auditions | Manhattan Wind Ensemble
Promoting Woodwind Quintet Music of the Western hemisphere for 40 years! Quintet of the Americas has announced the first concerts of their New York season. In recognition of this long commitment to composers, these cross-cultural programs will feature music from folk-based to contemporary. This concert is free and open to the public. New commissions to be premiered include a quintet by Queens resident Gilbert Galindo and a new piano wind sextet by Cuban composer Ernesto Oliva.
This month the leaves includes many double woodwind quintets. Although the list already had a good number of double wind quintets, this was the first deep-dive specifically into that category. With these additions, it makes over new listings for the quintet list this year. I call that a pretty good year!
