Jonathan Wintringham


Reviews

“A saxophonist of unusual sophistication…Changing his color in ways so sensitive that he bordered on alchemist.”
-Philadelphia Inquirer

“Absolutely stunning...nothing short of a virtuoso.”
-The Sax Magazine, Japan

“Saxophonist Jonathan Wintringham can make his horn sing. When he plays, his sound has a way of swallowing a room and all that's in it, drawing you into the musical world he is creating.”
-Arizona Daily Star

“A major force in the saxophone world…He has a nice and resonant sound; he boasts an excellent set of fingers and articulation; he phrases with an artistic awareness well beyond his years; and he tackles the postmodernist content of his program with extreme volume shifts, [and] daring color changes.”
-American Record Guide

“I was not so much ‘pleasantly surprised’ as ‘blown away,’
first by the music itself and then by the performance.  Wintringham scored a resounding triumph.
-The Chestnut Hill Local, Philadelphia

East End met up with pianist Szu-Yi Li for the second installment of their exploration of quintet literature. The centerpiece of the evening was the world-premiere of Graham Lynch's Symphony Cocteau, a brilliant new addition to the saxophone repertory. EE has worked with Graham for several years, and we're thrilled to feature his music as our first major quintet commission. Check out some of the highlights!

 

September 2016

East End having way too much fun at the University of Alabama. We had a wonderful time working with Jon Noffsinger's students. A performance of Bolcom's Concerto Grosso with Dr. O and the UA Wind Ensemble was the perfect way to close our residency. Roll tide!
