Full: Splinter Reeds
Programmed by Sarah Cahill
The quintet Splinter Reeds makes its second appearance at BAMPFA, showcasing the artistry of five immensely talented Bay Area reed players: Kyle Bruckmann (oboe), Bill Kalinkos (clarinet), David Wegehaupt (saxophone), Jeff Anderle (bass clarinet), and Dana Jessen (bassoon). This program of new music features the world premiere of a work by New York–based composer Sky Macklay.
The commission of Sky Macklay's work was made possible by the Chamber Music America Classical Commissioning Program, with generous funding provided by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the Chamber Music America Endowment Fund.
