Music for Woodwinds and Brass
Hosted by Norman Fischer, with special guest Tom Siders

Many TMC Woodwind and Brass Fellows come to Tanglewood expressly to play in the orchestra under such conductors as BSO Music Director Andris Nelsons and to benefit from the mentorship of seasoned BSO musicians. But the study of chamber, ensemble, and new music is another important part of their summer. Brass and Woodwind Fellows begin their summers playing in smaller wind and brass ensemble music, bonding personally and learning to blend musically.

In this macho and muscular Festmusik der Stadt Wien, Fellows play alongside not only their BSO mentors, but also a special guest in the trumpet section: Maestro Nelsons. These woodwind and brass concerts also include the world premieres of works commissioned from recent TMC Composition Fellows. Two 2018 world premieres are offered here: Ninfea Cruttwell-Reade’s grooving brass and percussion fanfare Table Talk and Theo Chandler’s mercurial Two Taylor Songs, featuring soprano Ally Smither.
