Now in its seventh decade, the New York Woodwind Quintet continues to maintain an active concert presence around the world while also teaching and mentoring the next generation of woodwind performers. One of the oldest continuously active chamber ensembles in the U.S., the Quintet has commissioned and premiered numerous compositions, some of which have become classics of the woodwind repertoire. They include Samuel Barber’s Summer Music, and quintets by Gunther Schuller, Ezra Laderman, William Bergsma, Alec Wilder, William Sydeman, Wallingford Riegger, Jon Deak, and Yehudi Wyner. The Quintet has featured many of these works in recordings for such labels as Boston Skyline, Bridge, New World and Nonesuch. Unique among all woodwind quintets touring today, the New York Woodwind Quintet is comprised of artists dedicated to chamber music, yet who are individually known as soloists with far-ranging careers. Current NYWQ members are flutist Carol Wincenc, clarinetist Charles Neidich, oboist Stephen Taylor, bassoonist Marc Goldberg, and french hornist William Purvis. The NYWQ was Ensemble-in-Residence of The Juilliard School 1989-2015
