Now in its 19th season, Zéphyros Winds is one of America’s distinguished chamber ensembles. Bringing together five of the finest wind virtuosos of their generation, Zéphyros Winds made its New York concerto debut opening the 2004 Mostly Mozart Festival and has appeared at the nation’s most prestigious concert venues, including The Library of Congress, Wolf Trap, Carnegie’s Weill Hall, Dumbarton Oaks, Duke Performances at Duke University, “The Movado Hour” at The Baryshnikov Art Center in New York City, Da Camera Society of Los Angeles, Skaneateles Festival, and Lincoln Center’s “Great Performers Series.”
Taking its name from the Greek god of the West Wind, Zéphyros Winds first gained national attention in 1995, when, one year after its formation, it won both the First and Grand Prizes at the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition, becoming the first wind quintet in the competition’s 22-year history to do so. They made their New York debut in 1997 at Merkin Concert Hall, and began extensive touring throughout the United States.
The program will include repertoire by W. A. Mozart, Wolfgang Rihm, Irving Fine, Samuel Barber, and Felix Mendelssohn.
