In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, France became the compositional epicenter of chamber music written for wind instruments. The timbrally colorful combination of the instruments proved irresistible for many of France’s most compelling musical voices. Join these virtuosic wind players from the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center as they explore this ravishing, and rarely heard, repertoire.
