Featuring the Columbus Symphony Woodwind Quintet* and Columbus Symphony violinist Tatiana Hanna, with special guest pianist Ahlin Min.

Claude Debussy, Premiere Rhapsodie- for clarinet and piano, a dreamy, free spirited piece with the same magical style of Debussy's Afternoon of a Faun.

Igor Stravinsky, L'Histoire du Soldat- in a version for clarinet, violin and piano. Stravinsky's angular tale of a soldier tricked by the Devil and a possessed violin! A wild ride with Tango, Waltz and Ragtime dance music!

Francis Poulenc, Sextet- for Woodwind Quintet and Piano, Vaudevillian burlesque alternately with hauntingly seductive and dreamy melodies. Memorable and fun.

*Columbus Symphony Woodwind Quintet- Steve Secan, oboe; Randy Hester, flute; Betsy Sturdevant, bassoon; David Urschel, horn; David Thomas, clarinet.
