Friends of Chamber Music: Poulenc's Homage to Winds

  November 8, 2024 7:00 PM

Doors Open: 6:30 PM

The Friends of Chamber Music partners with the nation’s premier chamber music organization — the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center — to bring to light a spectacular program centered around music for wind instruments in multiple combinations. Marking the return of the phenomenal master pianist Anne-Marie McDermott, we have a chance to introduce to Kansas City the former principal horn of the Berlin Philharmonic, Radek Baborák, alongside a star-studded international cast of performers: flutist Adam Walker, oboist James Austin Smith, clarinetist David Shifrin, and bassoonist Marc Goldberg. Poulenc’s enchanting Sextet for Piano and Winds anchors the evening.
