French Connection1This spring we’re turning to France for a series of concerts featuring some of the most entertaining wind writing of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Our program:

Novelette in C by Francis PoulencArranged for quintet from a delightful piece for solo piano.
Cinq Pieces en Trio by Jacques IbertA reed trio by one of the twentieth century’s most engaging composers of wind music.
Variations on a Free Theme by Eugene BozzaLots of notes; lots of wit; lots of fun!
La Cheminee du Roi Rene by Darius MilhaudMedieval France as seen from the twentieth century.
Sextuor by Francis Poulenc (with Guy Urban, piano)Did anyone write a better piece for piano and winds? Only Mozart is in contention.
