Omega Ensemble and ABC Classic have released a new recording, Nielsen: Wind Quintet, Op. 43.
In Nielsen’s biography, the author writes: ‘Nielsen’s fondness of wind instruments is closely related to his love of nature, his fascination for living, breathing things. He was also intensely interested in human character, and the Wind Quintet, composed deliberately for five friends, is cunningly made to suit the individuality of each player.’
Since its premiere in 1922 Nielsen’s Wind Quintet has remained one of the most popular and beloved pieces in the woodwind repertoire.
