Introducing the woodwinds
The New York Woodwind Quintet is featured on this opening program with introductions by Yehudi Menuhin. Each member of the Quintet provides a simple explanation of his method of tone production evoking the familiar experiences of the children. For example: playing a flute is compared to blowing over the top of a soda bottle; the length of tubing in a French Horn is likened to a garden hose. The music selected for demonstration gives each instrument an opportunity to illustrate its sound alone and with the other instruments.
