A Woodwind Affair

A Woodwind AffairProgram:
Poulenc: Suite française (d’après Claude Gervaise)                                                   
Scott: Sacred Women                                              
Stravinsky: Symphonies of Wind Instruments, 1947 Revision                  
Weill: Kleine Dreigroschenmusik, Suite from The Threepenny Opera

A sumptuous feast for discerning woodwind aficionados, this program combines three modernist delicacies – Poulenc’s charming, dance-based Suite française (d’après Claude Gervaise), Stravinsky’s Russian-folk-infused Symphonies of Wind Instruments (dedicated to the memory of Claude Debussy), and Kurt Weill’s famed “Kleine Dreigroschenmusik” Suite from The Threepenny Opera – with an agreeably congruous work by contemporary composer Jeff Scott.

A French horn player of great accomplishment, Mr. Scott is perhaps best known as a founding member of the adventurous, Grammy-nominated quintet Imani Winds, whose dynamic performances The Washington Post has described as "exuding a sultry sophistication.” His numerous arranging and composing credits include theatrical production scores as well as original works for solo winds, wind and brass quintet, horn quartet, and jazz ensembles.
