Wind Quintet No. 1Soloists of the London Philharmonic OrchestraCatherine Edwards
Members of the London Philharmonic Orchestra’s celebrated wind section take the stage in a programme beginning with two French wind quintets: the last ever work in the long career of the ever-inventive, ever-entertaining Darius Milhaud; and the First Quintet by that master of witty, idiomatic wind writing Jean Françaix. The wind players are joined by pianist Catherine Edwards in the Sextet by Bohuslav Martinů, written in Paris in the ‘jazz age’ of the 1920s, and in the Quintet with which Beethoven announced himself to Viennese audiences as a young lion of the keyboard and a compositional heir to Mozart.
