The Berkeley Ensemble makes its debut at St. John’s Smith Square with Barber’s Summer Music, by turns languid and energetic, and which recalls both Gershwin and Stravinsky. Alongside, mid-20th century quintets by Gunther Schuller and Elliott Carter are interspersed with works for solo players, completing this all-American survey of music for winds.
