Sylvan Winds "Music of the Gilded Age”
Upper Gallery, November 12, 2015
Thursday, November 12, 7:30PM.
The Sylvan Winds are excited to introduce the repertoire of our next recording, “Music of the Gilded Age,” with more rarely performed gems introduced to American audiences by French flutist Georges Barrère along with the only the second performance of movements from Griffes’ Three Tone-Pictues especially arranged for Barrère’s ensemble by the composer! It is almost a centenary since its premiere on December 19, 1916.
Saint-Saëns Feuillet d’Album for wind octet, Op. 81 (arr. by P.Taffanel)
Tickets available at the door or at www.sylvanwinds.com
A French themed fund-raising reception will take place following the performance in the elegant Fifth Avenue mansion that is home to the Salmagundi Club.
