THE DORIAN WIND QUINTET
SEPTEMBER 12, 2020, 7:30 PM through midnight September 14
Since its formation at Tanglewood in 1961, the Dorian Wind Quintet has literally been around the world—performing in the United States and Canada, touring Europe eighteen times, and playing throughout the Middle East, India, Africa, and Asia. The Dorian made history as the first wind quintet to appear at Carnegie Hall.
The Quintet has collaborated with numerous well-known artists, commissioned nearly 40 new works of wind chamber music, and held residencies at some of the world’s most prestigious music festivals and educational institutions. All of the members of the Quintet are associated with other prominent performing ensembles, venues, and musical institutions. They have come together in this group out of their passion for the wind chamber music repertoire.
