Borealis Wind Quintet

The Borealis Wind Quintet has been acclaimed as one of America's preeminent chamber ensembles. The highest musical integrity, irresistible energy and five-fold charisma distinguish Borealis in the chamber music field. Audiences love their exquisite programming that includes the finest of the classics, engaging commissions, opera arias, and works for piano and winds.

The Washington Post praised their "sensitive collaborations that have a sophisticated and cosmopolitan air." Peter G. Davies of the New York Times described one concert as "a polished, elegantly turned performance...each work received lively, expert and musicianly treatment by this skilled and exceptionally talented chamber group." Joseph Horowitz of the New York Times describes "lively communicative readings... the performance was a scintillating one." The Philadelphia Inquirer writes, "they demonstrated the sort of rapport that characterizes the very best chamber playing."
