The wonderful MFAF Young Artists are featured prominently in this program, opening with two great works for solo flute – the haunting Syrinx by Debussy and the amazing virtuoso work by Ian Clarke The Great Train Race.  The extended techniques used in the Clarke very effectively evoke the sounds of old trains!  The newly written work by Andrea Clearfield that was premiered on August 22 in Angel Fire will be offered for a second hearing, and the program closes with one of the greatest works for this combination, the quintet for piano and winds by Mozart featuring members of the Triacanthos Quintet.
