 NFA-commissioned wind quintet at NFA w/Imani Winds
Author: odhecaton

Hardwood, the new wind quintet commissioned by NFA, the International Clarinet Association, International Double Reed Society, and International Horn Society, will be co-premiered at NFA by Imani Winds on the Gala Concert, Fri. Aug. 10th, at 8pm.

The following morning at 9am the composer (me) will be giving a lecture/presentation with Imani Winds about the piece and JWQP (the Joint Wind Quintet Project). JWQP is collaboration between NFA, ICA, IHS and IDRS. Last year they held an international composition competition to commission a wind quintet to be premiered at the international conventions of each society this summer. I'm humbled to say that I was the Winner, and this is the resulting piece.

If anyone is interested in seeing/hearing the piece in advance, you can view or download the score and stream the audio online here:

Following the co-premiere at IDRS last week, Marc Fink (oboist and former President of IDRS), wrote: "Hardwood is a wonderful quintet and a very significant contribution to the woodwind quintet repertoire. ... I think that the piece is as difficult and as appealing as John Harbison's "Woodwind Quintet" (1980)."

It’s also being co-premiered at ICA by Konza Wind Quintet on Aug. 4th, should anyone be attending that.
If any of you can make it to either the NFA or ICA performance, please do introduce yourself; it would be a pleasure to meet you!
