CURTIS ON TOUR: HIGDON, BARBER, KRAMARCHUK & POULENC

Curtis Institute of Music

by Maggie Stapleton

Each year some of the finest student musicians (at one of the finest institutions in the country!) have the unique and exciting opportunity to travel around the country on a concert tour. This year, a woodwind quintet of current Curtis students, plus ’05 alum pianist Di Wu, held this honor.

 

On Tuesday, March 25 they made a stop just north of Seattle at the Florence Henry Memorial Chapel as part of the Highlands Chapel Music Series and Second Inversion recorded their concert of (mostly) seasonally themed works for quintet and sextet by (mostly) Curtis composer alums:

Please enjoy this exciting concert audio along with some commentary from some of the performers and David Ludwig, director of the Curtis 20/21 Contemporary Music Ensemble.  Stay tuned for more live concert recordings from Second Inversion!
