Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the International Double Reed Society, July 26-31, 2021, the IDRS held its Second Annual Virtual Symposium.  They presented  “Trio d’anches: Stories and Dreams” is a 25-minute concert program created to premiere compositions written for Sonora Winds by two composers: Polish-American composer Barbara Jazwinski, and Polish composer Maciej Malecki. The concert began with “The Dreams of Vagabond Winds” composed by Jazwinski. The work is highly virtuosic, exploring idiomatic, coloristic and textural characteristics of the three instruments in different registers and dynamic levels. The ensemble Sonora Winds includes Madeline Miller, oboe; Anastasiya Nyzkodub, clarinet; and Marta Troicki, bassoon.
