Description

An exquisite blend of wind instruments performing a selection of wind quintet pieces, the Berlin Philharmonic Wind Quintet continues to astonish audiences worldwide with their range of expression, tonal spectrum, and conceptual unity. Indeed, many listeners and critics agree that the ensemble has succeeded in virtually redefining the sound of the classic wind quintet, comprised of flute, oboe, clarinet, horn, and bassoon. U-M Professor Martin Katz, one of the most sought-after collaborative pianists, joins the ensemble for the Poulenc Sextet.
