Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Ma’alot Wind Quintet has recorded selections from Mendelssohn’s fabulous A Midsummer Night’s Dream, in arrangements written by the quintet's clarinetist Ulf-Guido Schäfer that fit like a tailor-made suit. Also included on this album is a wind quintet version of Mendelssohn's Sting Quartet No. 5 Op. 44 no 3 and the Overture for Winds. These arrangements and the exquisite musicianship almost make these pieces sound as if Mendelssohn intended them for wind quintet!
