  • In contrast to Nielsen's Wind Quintet, Lior Navok’s Tetris is a bustling musical cityscape inspired by the composer’s observation of city life in contemporary New York. The composer reflects: "People were constantly looking for ways to juggle between many things at the same time.

  • Beethoven was in his early 20s when he wrote his delicious wind octet. Hear it alongside another classic of the wind ensemble repertoire, the Quintet by Nielsen, which breathes deeply of the world of nature
  • Pauline Hall was a prolific composer; you’ll be delighted by the sounds of her bucolic Suite from 1945
  • Written in 2007, John Carmichael's On the Green celebrates the green spaces where city dwellers can enjoy the open air – from family outings, warm sunshine and merry-go-rounds to the mystery of a park after dark

Robert Simpson on Carl Nielsen’s Wind Quintet: "Nielsen’s fondness of wind instruments is closely related to his love of nature, his fascination for living, breathing things."
