With its classical form, the elegance of its scripture and the virtuosity of the instrumental parts, Nielsen's Wind Quintet is a key work in its repertoire. This year, we commemorate the centennial of this composition and the Styx Ensemble invites us to the celebration party. On this festive occasion, they combine this emblematic piece with two recent compositions by Tüür and McMillan.
Erkki-Sven Tüür (1959)
Carl Nielsen (1865-1931)
Wind Quintet, op. 43
James McMillan (1959)
