Live from Hochstein: Antara Winds: Bridging Centuries
Antara Winds explores the woodwind quintet from the 18th century to the present day, going from Franz Danzi’s Quintet in G Minor – one of the classics of the 18th Century repertoire – to Amanda Harberg’s Suite for Wind Quintet, composed in 2017. Both are virtuosic pieces and reflect the energy and lyricism of their times.
You're invited to hear this music on Live from Hochstein on Wednesday March 30th at 12:10pm, in person* at the Hochstein Performance Hall (50 N. Plymouth Avenue, downtown Rochester) or by listening to the live broadcast on WXXI Classical.
Featuring Antara Winds: Diane Smith, flute; Judith Ricker, oboe; Margaret Quackenbush, clarinet; George Sakakeeny, bassoon; and Nikolette LaBonte, horn. Founded in 1982 – and celebrating their 40th anniversary with this performance! – the Antara Winds have appeared regularly on “Live from Hochstein” and have performed extensively throughout the Greater Rochester area including appearances with the Rochester Oratorio Society, Perinton Concert Band, and Society for Chamber Music in Rochester.
Live from Hochstein with host Mona Seghatoleslami is a series of lunchtime concerts by some of the finest artists in our area broadcast live from Hochstein Performance Hall. Each of these free “brown bag” concerts runs from 12:10-12:50 p.m., giving downtown business people, teachers, families, students, and friends an opportunity to enjoy classical music during their lunch hour. You can also hear an encore broadcast of Live from Hochstein later the same day at 10 p.m. on Classical 91.5.
