Canova Winds (USA)
Canova Winds explores the emergence of one of classical music’s most loved ensembles. Concertgoers may be familiar with well-known wind quintets by Nielsen, Hindemith and Barber, but the form originates with Giuseppe Cambini, Franz Danzi, Anton Reicha and Beethoven. Each period wind instrument is unique and playful on its own, but merged they produce a bouquet of sounds seldom heard by modern ears.
“…allow[s] each note to sound with its own expressive qualities.” San Francisco Examiner
