The Wind Connection

  

In orchestral and chamber music, the strings usually have the upper hand. But turnabout is fair play, and it’s time to celebrate the sound of horns, clarinets, flutes, oboes, and bassoons.

In this hour, works for wind ensembles—large and small—by Handel, Mozart, Beethoven, Sibelius, Holst, and more.
