The winds blow and the reeds sparkle. They sway and shimmer, sometimes stirred by the rhythms of Latin America, or pulsing with harmonies of our nation further north or calling forth jolly English congeniality. Cuban-born saxophonist/clarinetist, multi-Grammy Award winner, Paquito D’Rivera, chamber-music-wise, explores the many branches of his roots while a sense of Poulenc may cross your mind. As if a cousin, Brazil’s Julio Medaglia follows the path of dance steps from Argentina or recalls other European charm, Austrians waltzing. Two of his contemporaries, America’s Armand Russell and England’s Paul Harvey, have found new resonances in the sound of the tuba, with Harvey evoking the spirits of fellow musicians’ celebratory moments in London pubs. This hardly can be called an intimate gathering, but don’t fear frenzy.
