Woodwind Trio at Bryant Park Fountain Terrace

May 18, 2021

Bryant Park


Woodwind chamber music had something of a renaissance in the 1920s; at the same time, works for reed trio—oboe, clarinet, and bassoon—were coming together with the formation of the Trio d’Anches de Paris, a collaboration of three virtuosi reed players. This program offers music from some of the greatest composers of wind music in the 20th century.

This performance is part of a free chamber music series in partnership with Bryant Park with programs curated by ASO musicians. Music-lovers will find a limited number of first-come, first-served chairs set up near the Bryant Park Fountain Terrace in front of the stage to enjoy an after-work respite with live music. Artists, staff, and audience members will be required to follow current public health guidelines including wearing masks and social distancing.
