“Music of the Americas Recital” featuring The Lieurance Wind Quintet

The Lieurance Woodwind Quintet has taken on the task of examining music written by composers since our group’s inception. The borrowing and blending of compositional techniques, antiquated forms, ethnic and poly-rhythms, not to mention popular song and jazz is the constant thread linking these distinctly “American” works together. Spanning influences from four continents—Europe, North American, Africa, and South America—these works demonstrate how fertile soil can grow infinite diversity.
