Catalogue Number: 01V057
Description: The Quintet was written in 1953, the same year that Castérède won the Prix de Rome, and touches of Gershwin appear among its witty colors. Neo-Classical restraint in the Sonate contrasts with the grittier and more modernist Musique while La Belle Époque takes us on a whistle-stop tour of Classical repertoire, parodying famous tunes by Haydn and Mozart. Cobus du Toit (flute, piccolo), Antero Winds and other artists.
