Wind quintets, a standard combination in the chamber music genre, have the challenge, as well as the benefits, of bringing together five distinct instruments to explore multiple blends of timbres; Klughardt’s work is a beautiful example of great writing for each of the five. The addition of piano in Louise Farrenc’s Sextet provides expanded sonic dimensions and is a true tour de force for the pianist. The program is balanced with smaller combinations featuring double reeds, the regal sound of the horn, and upper winds.
