The November winds may be blowing strong outside, but inside in Wilton Library’s Brubeck Room it will be the sounds of the Madera Winds quintet when it joins with Western Connecticut State University faculty member and pianist Laurel Larsen in a recital of two piano/wind sextets.
The free concert, Piano Takes Five, opens the library’s Connecticut’s Own Concert Series on Sunday, Nov. 4, from 4 to 5. To commemorate Veterans Day, one sextet is composed by WWI veteran Gordon Jacob, written as a dedication to a war veteran and famous British horn player. The program will end with the notable chamber music repertoire piece, Sextet Op. 6 by Austrian composer, Ludwig Thuille.
