“Contemporary classical music has been fragmenting into ever greater eclecticism, as demonstrated by the repertory performed at the Music of Now marathon at Symphony Space.” –The New York Times

Quintet of the Americas is one of the Western Hemisphere’s finest chamber ensembles. The Washington Post has called their performances, “Musical dialogue at the highest level” and Japan’s InTune Magazine has written about them, “Their virtuosity, balances, articulation and intonation mark them as one of the world’s top wind quintets. I have never heard finer playing.” The Quintet is in residence in The Department of Music and Performing Arts in The Steinhardt School at New York University.
