Not long ago, I learned from bassoonist David Nagy (whom I knew from Contemporaneous), that he was part of a newly-formed wind ensemble called SoundMind. The five members of the ensemble are David, flutist Isabel Lepanto Gleicher, oboist (also oboe d’amore and cor anglais) Kemp Jernigan, clarinetist Eric Umble, and Patrick Jankowski on horn. Here they are, performing the first two movements of Dvorak’s String Quartet No. 12 (“American”), arranged for the ensemble’s instrument complement. I just loved this, and hope you will too. I can’t wait to hear the ensemble live.
Antonín Dvořák: String Quartet No. 12 “American” – 1. Allegro ma non troppo
