Berlin Philharmonic Wind Quintet
7:30 p.m., Monday April 29
The Berlin Philharmonic Wind Quintet was founded in 1988, during the era of Herbert von Karajan, as the first permanently established wind quintet in the famous orchestra’s rich tradition of chamber music.
With four original members since inception, they continue to astonish audiences worldwide with their range of expression, their tonal spectrum and their conceptual unity. Indeed many listeners and critics agree that the ensemble has succeeded in virtually redefining the sound of the classic wind quintet.
