BEETHOVEN: Quintet in E-flat for Piano and Winds, Op 16
CRUMB:  Vox Balaenae for three masked players



The composer of each of these works had a very specific inspiration.  Coleman was inspired to translate the captivating folk strings style for winds.  Crumb’s work may seem like it was inspired by recent events, but it was a recording of whale song that prompted his trio.  In Beethoven’s day, chamber music was dominated by strings, but it was Mozart’s wind quintet that motivated Beethoven to try his hand.  All three works make completely different demands on the players, with completely different and wonderful results.
