Label: NEW FOCUS RECORDINGS
Format: COMPACT DISC
Ambitious wind quintet Splinter Reeds presents a bracing program of new works written for the group by composers Sky Macklay, Matthew Schlomowitz, Caro Haxo, Eric Wubbels, Theresa Wong, and Yannis Kyriakides. All of the works display an envelope pushing impulse that stretches the boundaries of this traditional instrumental format, carving out new repertoire and provoking new aesthetic perspectives. This project was funded in part through grants from the Aaron Copland Fund for Music, Inc., the Alice M. Ditson Fund, and the Amphion Foundation. Splinter Reeds is a fiscally-sponsored affiliate of InterMusic SF, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to small-ensemble music in the San Francisco Bay Area.
