For over two decades Imani Winds has championed the evolution of the wind quintet through adventurous programming. With De Memorias, they take inspiration from Pulitzer Prize–winning composer Tania León’s woodwind quintet, dedicated to the Cuban composer Alfredo Diez Nieto. In doing so, Imani journeys onto the field of contemporary Latin composers and the masters who blazed the trail ahead of them. This reflective prism reveals a textured landscape, one that complements introspective designs by Miguel del Aguila and Astor Piazzolla with the playfulness of Paquito D’Rivera, Heitor Villa Lobos, and Pixinguinha’s madcap Um a Zero.
