Lucie Skeaping presents a profile of the Renaissance wind ensemble Piffaro, based in Philadelphia. This wonderfully colourful, virtuosic ensemble have been together for over 25 years. During the programme Lucie talks to the two artistic directors, Joan Kimball and Robert Wiemken about their work. The music in the programme is from the ensemble's many recordings, using a wide variety of instruments and repertoire, and includes arrangements of French chansons and Flemish dances, and music inspired by the ensemble's recent trip to Bolivia.
