Set to Bach’s serenely soaring Air on the G String from his Orchestral Suite No. 3 in D Major, this quintet reflects the music’s sustained spiritual mood. Inspired by Humphrey’s love for the beauty of the music, the flowing movement and reverential gestures suggest an inner exaltation. This program includes a copy of the only film of Humphrey performing Air.
