Berlin Philharmonic Wind Quintet
Declared “arguably the best ensemble of its kind in the world” (Manchester Evening News), the Berlin Philharmonic Wind Quintet astonishes audiences worldwide with their range of expression, tonal spectrum and conceptual unity. Critics and fans agree that the ensemble has succeeded in virtually redefining the sound of the classic wind quintet, and many of their recordings are widely held to be definitive performances. The Berlin Philharmonic Wind Quintet – the first permanently established wind quintet in the famous orchestra’s rich tradition of chamber music – are also popular guests at international festivals such as the Edinburgh Festival, the London Proms, the Quintette-Biennale Marseille and the Salzburg Festival.
At the heart of the Peace Center’s mission is a commitment to bringing people together to experience the highest quality artistic performances. The 2018-2019 Peace Chamber program offers a world-class chamber music concert series and invites audiences to dive deeper through FREE Musical Happy Hours, Chamber Peace Talks and master classes with visiting artists.
Now in its third year, Peace Chamber welcomes a new artist-in-residence, Dr. Igor Begelman. Begelman will serve as a musical guide to the season, helping audiences explore the five concerts in the series and expanding the knowledge of curious music-lovers and chamber music enthusiasts alike. In addition to the programs open to the public, Begelman will work with student music groups and visit schools to engage students and educators in music education programs.
