about us

Canova Winds takes its name from Neoclassical sculptor Antonio Canova, an aesthetic innovator famed for molding the classical style to suit contemporary tastes. Not your typical woodwind quintet, Canova Winds performs exclusively on period instruments in search of a unique and compelling sound that is simultaneously fresh and strikingly old. Our players, based in Seattle, San Francisco, and Washington D.C., have appeared with many of North America’s top early music ensembles, including Tafelmusik, Portland Baroque, American Bach Soloists, Washington Bach Consort, Boston Baroque, Mercury Baroque, Musica Angelica, and many others. Join Canova as we explore this distinctive and unusual repertoire!
