Ensemble Connect by Fadi Kheir
The versatility of Ensemble Connect is showcased in music that spans Brahms’s rich Romanticism to innovative works by two contemporary composers. Tania León’s wind quintet De Memorias fascinates with its color and rhythmic daring, while Jennifer Higdon’s Zaka excites with its driving energy. There’s plenty of vitality in Brahms’s music, too—notably in his quartet’s boisterous finale—but the work also boasts soaring melodicism and a tender slow movement.
