Enjoyable CDNovember 25, 2013By Mark Fitzgerald (Pittsburgh, PA)See All My Reviews"These performances are charming, and the richly styled and felt music making feels very relaxed. These quintets display the winds and horn like various gymnasts, in a style that is classical and very spirited. This composer was born between Mozart and Beethoven, a this style hadn't been yet widely practiced. Each quintet creates its own world, like a painting. I like that this ensemble included a sonata, which really feels laid back after the gymnast style thrill of these three quintets. The wind playing throughout has the strength of feeling seamless, and a comfortable dialogue is established giving an Italian aura."Report Abuse
