The Carrion Wind Quintet from Denmark once again proves its class as a wind quintet with works by Mozart, Nielsen and Stivriana.
Wind quintet is one of those time-honored genres of chamber music whose performance practices have acquired a certain appearance over time. When it comes to string quartets, it's bands like the German Vision String Quartet that are currently reviving the genre with new concepts; And when it comes to wind quintets, the Carion Wind Quintet is one of them. The Danes not only play from memory, but also convey the structure of the works – you can admire it in many online videos – through sophisticated chamber choreography. They have truly reached the pinnacle both musically and technically: this CD further proves this with Carl Nielsen's important Quintet op.48 as the central work, which includes Mozart's Divertimento KV 113 and Terry Riley's 'In C' as well as the very interesting mini-cycle' “Man Without a Country” by Latvian composer Rinat Stivria.
