  • Franz Krommer: Octet Partita in E-flat major, Op. 79
  • Paul Hindemith: Kleine Kammermusik for Wind Quintet, Op. 24 No. 2
  • Antonín Dvořák: Serenade in D minor for Winds, Cello and Bass

Dvořák’s slavonic “Wind Serenade”, evocative of the old-world traditions, won him a meeting with Brahms, while Krommer’s beautifylly balanced wind writing is favorably compared to the serenades of Mozart. Exploring the range and virtuosity of each instrument, Hindemith’s Wind Quintet offers a lean, witty, neo-classical commentary on the wind music tradition. Come warm up listening to brilliant and rich sounding wind masterpieces!
