Mirrors & Deep Waters, Distant Stars – Reed Quintet World Premieres

Paradise Winds
Tiffany Pan, oboe
Joshua Gardner, clarinet
Stefanie Gardner, bass clarinet
Joseph Kluesener, bassoon
Patrick Murphy, saxophone

World Premiere performances of original music for reed quintet (oboe, bassoon, clarinet, bass clarinet, saxophone) by Bart Watté entitled *Mirrors* completed in 2020 and transcribed from clarinet trio referencing Romantic (Tchaikovsky) and Neo Classical (Stravinsky) signatures in palindrome form, and by Jonathan Russell entitled *Deep Waters, Distant Stars* also completed in 2020. Paradise Winds commissioned Russell after Russell witnessed a performance and inquired about composing an original work for an ensemble repertoire that specifically lacked “groove”.
