Even when undeniable beauties are taken into account, wind chamber music is in the shadow of chamber music for strings in terms of audience appeal - with very few exceptions.

The recording of the Atéa Quintet impressively illustrates the possibilities that arise from a pure wind instrumentation. Expanded to a nonet, the British let us discover a true jewel of this genre with the Concerto for Flute and Eight Winds by the English late romantic William Alwyn.

No less worth listening to is Quentin Pole’s extremely successful arrangement of Mozart’s Sonata for Piano for Four Hands, K497.

Atéa Quintet:
- Charles Beagles (horn)
- Anna Hashimoto (clarinet)
- Philip Haworth (oboe)
- Ashley Myall (bassoon)
- Alena Walentin (flutes)

...and friends...
- Jordan Black (clarinet)
- Paul Cott (horn)
- Jennifer Melville (oboe)
- Andrew Watson (bassoon)
