Event details

Founded in 1982, Antara Winds have appeared regularly on Live from Hochstein and have performed extensively throughout the Greater Rochester area including appearances with the Rochester Oratorio Society, Perinton Concert Band, and Society for Chamber Music in Rochester. 

For this concert, the ensemble explores music by Latin American composers. Milonga Sin Palabras (milonga is a musical song genre found in South America) is by Argentine tango composer Astor Piazzolla and is typical of his emotional and pensive style.

Wind Quintet No. 2, by Uruguayan composer Miguel del Aguila, makes use of modern, unusual techniques to paint landscapes of sound depicting both a tropical Latin-American mood and Middle Eastern exoticism.

The concert also includes Olé Guapa by Arie Malando. Click here to read the program notes.

Antara Winds delights in bringing audiences the music of contemporary composers. They have premiered two works written specifically for Antara: Verne Reynolds’ Antara Music (2003), and Libby Larsen’s Blue Windows: After Marc Chagall (2005).

The Hochstein School’s free noontime Live from Hochstein concert series will be hosted by WXXI Classical’s Mona Seghatoleslami and broadcast live on WXXI Classical. Listen to the concert at WXXI-FM 91.5, WXXY 90.3, or online at https://www.wxxiclassical.org. Listen to an encore broadcast on WXXI Classical 91.5 FM at 10:00 pm the day of the concert.
