Video (link): Imani Winds Play the Rite
26 Sunday May 2013
I have long been a huge fan of the Imani Winds – a woodwind quintet that has a distinct and delicious vision of what a woodwind quintet can do. Catch them live in concert if you ever get the chance! For a taste of their vision and abilities, check out this “Tiny Desk Concert” video currently playing on NPR; they perform excerpts of Igor Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring in a brilliant arrangement for 5 winds of the original massive orchestral score. An amazing feat!
