JACKSON HOLE, WYOMING — June 12, 2019
Prior to the start of the 2019 Summer Festival next month, the Grand Teton Music Festival presents a free community concert with wind quintet Prismatic Winds and pianist Andrew Palmer Todd on Saturday, June 15 at 7PM at Walk Festival Hall.
Comprised of music faculty from Brigham Young University-Idaho in Rexburg, flutist Nadine Luke, oboist Diane Soelberg, clarinetist Adam Ballif, hornist Jon Klein, and bassoonist Elizabeth Ball Crawford are an established chamber music quintet. Festival President and CEO Andrew Palmer Todd joins to perform two lively chamber works on this evening of chamber music.
The program begins with Mozart’s Quintet for Piano and Winds, which the composer himself regarded to be “the best thing I have written in my life.” Gordon Jacob’s colorful Sextet in B-flat for Piano and Winds follows, a cryptic memoriam for the father of noted horn player Dennis Brain. The program also includes Startin’ Sumthin’, a modern jazz cross-over composition by American composer and hornist, Jeff Scott.
The concert is approximately 75 minutes including intermission. Light concessions will be available for sale on the Hartley Pavilion. Admission is free, but a ticket is required. To reserve tickets, visit GTMF.org or call 307.733.1128.
