The Kalliope Reed Quintet, founded in 2019, is the first professional reed quintet in New England. As a contemporary chamber ensemble and one of the first 50 reed quintets worldwide, their mission is to expand and diversify the reed quintet repertoire and to further strengthen the role of contemporary chamber music in the 21st century by presenting unique, engaging, and educational programs to communities locally and worldwide.
Persevering through the many unexpected challenges of 2020, in the last year the Kalliope Reed Quintet has commissioned 14 new works for reed quintet, arranged 12 more, presented a 6 concert online summer series, founded the Kalliope Trio, and received funding to record their first album.
Found Objects: On the Beach for oboe, clarinet, and bassoon tells of finding objects on the beach – from tumbled stones to sea glass; from driftwood to black feathers on the sand and the seashells that populate the beach as far as the eye can see. A six-movement work approximately 23 minutes in length.
Premiered by the PEN Trio (Nora Lewis-oboe, Phillip Paglialonga-clarinet, and the late Dr. Eric Van der Veer Varner-bassoon), this work is published by TrevCo Music Publishing on the new PEN Trio Collection Series!
