AN EVENING OF JAZZ
– THE DORIAN WIND QUINTET
Tuesday, April 17, 2018 at 7:30 pm
Lauded by The New York Times for their “extraordinary accuracy and spirit,” the Dorian Wind Quintet is known worldwide as one of chamber music’s pre-eminent and longest continuously active ensembles. The Dorian made history in 1981, as the first wind quintet to appear at Carnegie Hall, and since then have been universally recognized for their polished and passionate performances.
They have been responsible for 40 commissions of 20th and 21st century wind music from major composers such as Luciano Berio, Lukas Foss and Sir Richard Rodney Bennett. Their commission of George Perle’s Wind Quintet No. 4 won the Pulitzer Prize for music in 1986.
At St. Bart’s, the quintet performed a compelling program of jazz works including Gershwin’s Three Preludes, Gunther Schuller’s Blues, Billy Childs’ Fugue in Perpetual Motion, and Lalo Schiffrin’s La Nouvelle Orleans (see Lalo Schiffrin’s La Nouvelle Orleans below).

Written for the Dorian Woodwind Quintet in 1987, 'La Nouvelle Orleans' showcases this composer's talent for writing in very diverse styles. We would expect nothing less from the man who composed the theme to 'Mission Impossible'!
