Chamber Music New Zealand presents IMANI WINDS
“There’s a big, vivacious, steel-belt of a sound Imani gets when playing at the top of its lungs that is most appealing” – Peter Dobrin, The Philadelphia Inquirer
The season concludes with fun, fire and flair thanks to the Imani Winds. Their mission is to use collaboration, outreach, and new commissions to bridge diverse musical tradition, including America, Latin American, and Africa.
Celebrated for the ‘sultry sophistication’ of their performances, Imani Winds are truly an ensemble for our time: they are young, outstandingly talented musicians whose reputation for musical innovation is growing all over the world.
Their unique programme reflects their commitment to the traditional and the new: Rimsky-Korsakov, Piazzolla and Ravel are surrounded by the flamboyant, genre-disrupting and entertaining music by less well-known Latin composers. And they’ll be presenting a new work by our very own Natalie Hunt.
