The Paramount Chamber Players (TPCP) will present Winter Winds, a program of music for piano plus wind instruments, in four Tri-Cities venues on January 26-29, 2017.

Let the warm sounds of the clarinet, horn, oboe, flute and bassoon croodle your soul in the corner of your mind. This winter, the Paramount Chamber Players present for the first time a concert without strings, an experiment of sound and color, temperament and tempest. The piano remains as a consistent texture while the violin is replaced by the flute or oboe; the viola by the clarinet or horn; and, the cello by the bassoon.

In the same way that we hear different “colors” or “timbres” when we hear an alto and a tenor sing the same notes or a bass and soprano sing the same melody, we hear a different quality of sound with winds than with strings. The center piece of this concert is a piano quintet by the Russian composer, Rimsky-Korsakov balanced by the music of German composer, Reinecke, and French composers, Milhaud and Schmitt.

The Paramount Chamber Players welcome guest artists, Larry Mueller, oboe; Vic Chavez, clarinet; Jeffrey Whaley, horn; and, Rosalind Buda, bassoon. Players appearing in the concert: Rebecca Paluzzi, flute and Craig W. Combs, piano.

The Paramount concert will be held Friday, December 27th at 7:30 pm. Click here to purchase tickets.
