The Soni Ventorum Wind Quintet

"I have worked closely with the members of the Soni Ventorum Wind Quintet in various activities.  Each one of the musicians is a virtuoso of his particular instrument, and through many years of dedication and work they have formed a truly remarkable ensemble.  For me, it is one of the finest groups of its kind."
