BPO Winds in Kerrville

The Berlin Philharmonic Wind Quintet gave their second performance at the Cailloux Theater last night for the Kerrville Performing Arts Society (KPAS). Their program of Mozart, Reicha, Milhaud and Nielsen was captivating! Horn player Fergus McWilliam said the Berlin Philarmonic has only played two repeat concerts while on tour - in Carnegie Hall in NYC and the Cailloux Theater in Kerrville! He was glib and charming, giving information about the composers, quintet and their recordings! All in all a delightful evening in the Hill Country.

Earlier in the day, they gave a masterclass - and were also busy in Austin on Wednesday, teaching and performing. Today they fly out to Chicago to continue their North American tour. Read more about the quintet here. Listen to John Clare's interview with McWilliam on Classical Spotlight here.
