Winds in the Garden

New Jersey Symphony Special Presentation with The Newark Museum of Art

Robert Wagner bassoon and curator
New Jersey Symphony Chamber Players

Wind music has entertained audiences for centuries. In Imperial Vienna, guests at most festive outdoor gatherings would be serenaded by groups of wind players, a tradition that gave us magnificent wind chamber music. This lovely evening with the New Jersey Symphony Chamber Players includes a Mozart masterpiece and music of Hummel and Gounod, alongside wind music of the 20th and 21st centuries chosen especially for the garden courtyard of The Newark Museum of Art.
