Quinteto Latino

Grainger Walking TuneTaffanel Quintette in G minorHurtado TenuePiazzolla Milonga Sin PalabrasGinastera Duo for flute and oboeVilla-Lobos Quinteto em forma de chorosQuinteto Latino blends the vibrant colors and vigorous rhythms of Latin American music with the sumptuous voices of the wind quintet: flute, oboe, clarinet, French horn, and bassoon. For this program they bring their impeccable artistry and infectious energy to two standards of the wind quintet literature: Paul Taffanel’s Quintette in G minor and Heitor Villa-Lobos’ Quinteto em forma de choros. Founded in 2001 by French hornist Armando Castellano, this unique ensemble is passionately dedicated to a dual mission: to expand the cultural boundaries of classical music, and to make that music available, relevant, and inspiring to entirely new audiences.
