Harrison Birtwistle 5 distances
Cambini Quintet No.1
Danzi Quintet in G minor
Our superb Associate Ensemble-in-Residence present three revolutionary pieces for Wind Quintet.
Cambini's work is probably the first ever written for the combination. Danzi revolutionised the timbre of the wind quintet, and through his influence the genre rivals string quartets for its delicacy and elegance. Birtwistle's Five Distances shows the extremes to which the Quintet can be pushed.
