Dorian Wind Quintet:
Gretchen Pusch, flute
Gerard Reuter, oboe
Benjamin Fingland, clarinet
Adrian Morejon, bassoon
Karl Kramer-Johansen, horn

Abigail Fischer, mezzo-soprano
Aaron Wunsch, piano

“One of chamber music’s most sparkling and eloquent ensembles” (TIME Magazine), the Dorian Wind Quintet joins forces with “luminous” mezzo-soprano Abigail Fischer (New York Times) for Lee Hoiby’s zesty, hilarious operatic portrait of Julia Child baking a chocolate cake, Bon Appétit! The Dorian also brings their “extraordinary accuracy and spirit” (New York Times) to both classic and contemporary American music, and Fischer offers Leonard Bernstein’s delicious song cycle of recipes, La Bonne Cuisine. "Ms. Fischer sings with a passionate restraint that has no equal in her generation." (New York Times)
