Named after Henrik Strindberg’s “Puff” composition, this vibrant group is now in its fifth year as a Juilliard Resident Ensemble. Their exciting performances have introduced audiences to the woodwind quintet repertoire through innovative entry points, stimulating increased enthusiasm for the genre. Puff! Quintet is a featured group at The Juilliard School’s annual Focus! Festival and recently won the 2009 J.C. Arriaga Chamber Music Competition, and was the only wind group in the 2009 Naumburg Chamber Music Competition finals. (More)
