Catalogue Number: 05N059
Description: Oddly, these works don’t get recorded very often. Full of humor, sometimes broad (a marvellously coarse, braying horn needling its mates in the first movement of the first quintet), sometimes delicate, always good-natured and often driving performers to the limits of their technique, what’s not to like? So if you don’t have ‘em, why don’t you? Bergen Woodwind Quintet. SACD hybrid.
