Director's Notes

Bach to Banfield takes us on a journey from the Baroque period to the present day. We open the series with the third of Bach’s six famous Brandenburg Concerti Grossi from 1722. Nineteenth century French composer Louise Farrenc’s Quintet is steeped in the Romantic style, with beautiful melodies and long phrases. In between is a unique combination of four instruments, a quartet by early 20th century composer, Bohuslav Martinů, for clarinet, horn, cello, and snare drum.

Finally, we perform works from the early twenty-first century by our Composer in Residence Dr. Bill Banfield’s woodwind quintet, entitled Dance Like the Wind from Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf with some jazz influences, and a commissioned work for steel drums by Cliff Alexis, Many Faces, written specifically for our principal percussionist Lana Wordel.
