Tuesday, as part of its 90th anniversary celebration, the Buffalo Chamber Music Society is welcoming Carol Wincenc and the New York Woodwind Quintet. Wincenc is an especially beloved figure here in Buffalo. Her father, Joseph Wincenc, was for a long time the concertmaster with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra. And Carol Wincenc has made many appearances over the years, each memorable in its own right.
The program ranges from ancient to modern. It includes the Quintet Op. 10 by Pavel Haas, and two Monteverdi madrigals. Music by Hector Villa-Lobos and Paul Hindemith is also on tap for the evening.
Music mavens might want to follow Tuesday’s concert with a free concert Sunday offered by the very promising young Korean-born pianist Ji-Yong, part of the Buffalo Chamber Music Society’s Gift to the Community Series.
Ji-Yong, now 22, played with the New York Philharmonic when he was 10, and he is also a veteran of the “From the Top” radio show. Recently, he won first prize in the 2012 Young Concert Artists International Auditions. His recital repertoire this season includes the music of Bach, Brahms, Schumann and Ravel.
Both concerts take place in the Mary Seaton Room of Kleinhans Music Hall.
Carol Wincenc performs at 8 p.m. Tuesday. Tickets are $20. Come early for a preconcert talk.
Sunday’s concert featuring Ji-Yong begins at 3 p.m. and is free.
