  • Pärt Quintettino
  • Nielsen Wind Quintet
  • Vasks Music for a deceased friend

One day in 1921 Carl Nielsen heard some wind players in the background while he was chatting on the telephone. The result was his Wind Quintet – a conversation for five players that’s as lively, unpredictable and entertaining as the man himself, and as fresh as a Scandinavian spring breeze. Arvo Pärt’s deliciously deadpan Quintettino makes a perfect appetiser!
