Missouri Quintet (clockwise):
Highlights include a Carnegie Hall debut in 1989; a broadcast on National Public Radio’s Performance Today; a performance at The International Festival of Chamber Music in Belem, Brazil; and a tour of China in 2010 with the University of Missouri Wind Ensemble.
The group is credited with recording two CDs for the Cambria label: Quintets Nos. 1 & 2 by American composer David Maslanka; and Romantic Winds, a collection of transcribed works by Grieg, Dvorak, and Rimsky-Korsakov. In 1999, the Quintet commissioned Quintet No. 3 from Maslanka. The work can be found on the group’s CD entitled David Maslanka: Music for Winds, released on the Albany Records label.
The Missouri Quintet was founded in 1977 with assistance from The Missouri Arts Council.
