“Jon Nakamatsu plays with the calm assurance that comes of having both a solid technique and a gentle, introspective, interpretive spirit.” 
The New York Times

“It is rare to hear man perfectly integrated with music – when the two are so inextricably linked that distinctions between them are rendered meaningless. Such communion was achieved by the Berlin Philharmonic Wind Quintet. It was a concert not to be forgotten.” 
 Washington Post

Texas Performing Arts welcomes back the ensemble that has virtually redefined the sound of the classic wind quintet, the Berlin Philharmonic Wind Quintet. For this performance, Van Cliburn Gold Medal-winning pianist Jon Nakamatsu joins the quintet.

Founded in 1988, during the era of Herbert von Karajan, the Berlin Philharmonic Wind Quintet is the first permanently established wind quintet in the famous orchestra’s rich tradition of chamber music. The Manchester Evening News described the ensemble as “the best of its kind in the world,” and they consistently perform to sold-out houses around the world. Their repertoire covers the spectrum of the wind quintet literature, and the ensemble’s stellar reputation has led to collaborations with such legendary conductors as Leonard Bernstein, Bernard Haitink, Riccardo Muti, James Levine, and Daniel Barenboim.

Since his dramatic 1997 Van Cliburn Gold Medal triumph, Jon Nakamatsu’s brilliant but unassuming musicianship and eclectic repertoire have made him a clear favorite throughout the world both on the concert circuit and in the recording studio. He has performed around the world and has collaborated with such conductors as James Conlon, Philippe Entremont, Marek Janowski, Raymond Leppard, Stanislaw Skrowaczewski, Michael Tilson Thomas, and Osmo Vänskä.
