Mexico City Woodwind Quintet: Fundamental Chamber Music Skills
Join the Mexico City Woodwind Quintet for a brief concert, followed by a discussion about chamber music skills and rehearsal strategies.
The quintet will address topics such as environment and organization effort in an ensemble, rules for rehearsals, the art of criticism, phrasing and dynamic concepts and new technologies for rehearsals.
The Mexico City Woodwind Quintet is regarded as one of the foremost chamber music groups in Mexico today. Its compact discs, New Mexican Music, Latin American Images and Pan-American Visions, released in 1995, 1998 and 2001, are examples of the Quintet’s continued dedication to promote the composition and dissemination of contemporary works by Mexican and Latin American composers, one of the objectives of the group. This goal was realized during its recent tour of Italy presenting for the first time in Europe many new Mexican works. The list of works commissioned by and dedicated to the Quintet is growing, and incorporates the leading Mexican and Latin American composers of today.
