About Kammerwerke

Under the direction of Alan Pearlmutter, Kammerwerke features rarely heard original compositions and arrangements of more well-known classical works for ten wind instruments.  The double wind quintet (a.k.a. dectet), rather rare in America, combines the intimacy of chamber groups and the power of larger ensembles.  The sound of ten winds resonates with a full panorama of orchestral color, depth and brilliance.

This concert is supported, in part, by grants from the Bedford, Chelmsford and Concord Cultural Councils which are supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
