The Transatlantic Winds, formed in the early 1980s to bring woodwind ensemble music to the community, has been a staple of the music scene. It is with great pleasure that we present them as part of the Accolade Concert Series for our audiences in Queens, said spokeswoman LeeAnn Close.
The Transatlantic Winds are: David Gailing, clarinet, William Parrish, oboe, Jonathan Watkins, bassoon, Paul Riggio, French horn, Marco Granados, flute. Also playing at the performance will be Josephine Parascandolo, piano and Maestro David Close, piano. As always, Maestro Close is the host for this performance.
The program will include Variations on a Folksong by Jan Pieters Sweelinck (1562-1621) arranged by Ernest Lubin; Sonata for Clarinet and Piano by Arnold Bax, an important English composer of the early 20th century who evokes the musical world of Brahms and Tchaikovsky with a distinctive modern feel; The Easy Winners by Scott Joplin, transcribed for woodwind quintet by Anthony Iannaccone; and Maple Leaf Rag by Scott Joplin, transcribed for woodwind quintet by Arthur Frankenpole.
These infectiously entertaining Joplin Rags arranged for woodwinds exploit the wonderful colors of the clarinet, bassoon, oboe and French horn, Close said.
Trois Pieces Breves by Jacques Ibert and Quintet for Piano, Oboe, Clarinet, Horn and Bassoon by W. A. Mozart, K.452, a classic Mozart at the height of his powers, round out the bill.
The concert will be held Sunday, April 6, at 4 p.m., at Flushing Town Hall, 137-35 Northern Blvd. Call 718-279-4842 for tickets or more information.
