thumb CumbQuinThe Cumberland Quintet at Tennessee Tech University will give a free performance at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 4, in Wattenbarger Auditorium.

The group is composed of TTU faculty members Roger Martin, flute; William Woodworth, oboe; Wonkak Kim, clarinet; James Lotz, bassoon; and Jeremy Hansen, horn.

They will perform Jean-Phillippe Rameau’s “Gavotte with Six Doubles,” a theme and variation originally written for harpsichord. Each of the variations highlights the quintet’s different instruments. They will also perform one of the major contemporary works of its kind, “Woodwind Quintet” by American composer Elliott Carter, and Mozart’s “Quintet in E flat major for Piano and Winds,” which the composer considered to be one of his finest works. The performance will end with the finale of Endre Szervansky’s “Quintet for Winds.”

The concert is open to the public. Wattenbarger Auditorium is in the Bryan Fine Arts building at 1150 N. Dixie Ave.
