Critically Acclaimed Ensembles Join Together to Perform Bach Reinterpreted

The Orion String Quartet and Windscape Quintet Collaborate for a Fresh Take on a Bach Classic

In an exciting and rare collaboration, the Orion String Quartet and the Windscape woodwind quintet come together in harmony for a lively performance. These critically acclaimed ensembles are known for their excellent renditions of classic and modern masterpieces. During this BRAVO! concert they will be performing the late flutist Samuel Baron’s transcription of Bach’s “Art of the Fugue” for string quartet and wind quintet, as well as some classic favorites.

The Orion String Quartet is made up of brothers Todd and Daniel Phillips (who alternate on first and second violin), violinist Steven Tenenbom and cellist Timothy Eddy. The Orion String Quartet currently serves as the quartet-in-residence of Mannes College: The New School of Music in New York. Formed in 1987, they have announced that this year will be their last season before retiring from performing (though the quartet members will continue their various teaching appointments), making this concert the last time students can see them perform live at BYU.

The Windscape quintet formed in 1994 and is made up of artists-in-residence at the Manhattan School of Music. The quintet is known for their vibrant, creative energy and distinctive style. Windscape features Tara Helen O’Connor on flute and piccolo, Keisuke Ikuma on English horn and oboe, Alan R. Kay on clarinet, Frank Morelli on bassoon and David Jolley on horn.

BRAVO! Series producer/presenter Lyndsay Keith said, “Keyboardists and Bach enthusiasts across the globe are very familiar with the latter's ‘Art of the Fugue, but not like this! This new take on a very old favorite is a fitting collaboration for these two incredible ensembles.”
