Coleman Red Clay & Mississippi Delta, for wind quintet
Ibert Flute Concerto
Mozart Serenade in B-flat major (“Gran Partita”)
Wind instruments take center stage! The “Gran Partita” Serenade was famously featured in the 1984 film Amadeus and, aside from its poignancy, is notable for breaking all bounds from earlier serenades: 13 instruments, including basset horns! Seven movements! 50 minutes long! The music of Jacques Ibert continues this celebration of winds, with an acrobatic, energetic concerto featuring Principal Flute Jeffrey Khaner. Written in 2009, Valerie Coleman’s Red Clay & Mississippi Delta is inspired by her mother’s family and the delta region from which they hail. Listen closely—can you hear the juke joints and casino boats that line the Mississippi River?
