Wind Quintet, op.43
The five wind musicians – Magali Mosnier (flute), Ramon Ortega-Quero (oboe), Sebastian Manz (clarinet), David Fernandez Alonso (horn) and Marc Trenel (bassoon). The assumption that a wind quintet represents an exceptionally difficult combination is one they can confidently rebut: they are so well attuned to one another that their instruments fall into harmony and sound, when played together, almost like an organ. That gives the ensemble a unique authority of its own.
For its debut album, the ensemble has assembled works that display the versatility and creative enthusiasm of their composers. The wind-quintet formation enjoyed a renaissance in the 20th century. Composers like Carl Nielsen, Jean Francaix and Paul Hindemith experimented with this scoring and showed great inventiveness in exploiting the various acoustic characteristics of the different wind instruments. So you can imagine it takes the highest technical and musical skills to achieve full expression of these works. The works were specially arranged for and by the ensemble so as to be perfectly matched to each individual musician, and the Hans Rosbaud Studio in Baden-Baden, where the recordings were made, is an ideal venue for wind players contributing to the success of the sound.
