Reicha: op. 88, nos. 5 & 6. Westwood Wind Quintet
This is the 9th and newest CD in the 12-CD series of the 24 complete woodwind quintets by Anton Reicha. There are now 18 CDs available on 9 CDs. The remaining 3 CDs will be released when production is completed on them, about one each 4 to 5 months.“each Reicha Quintet is a masterpiece of the highest order. Those who ignore this legacy are missing out not only on some terrific wind music but on some of the finest music ever penned. These pieces are symphonies in miniature...each one a masterpiece.” Audiophile Audition (Ritter)----- "The players seek, find, and reveal the numerous qualities that have kept Reicha’s Quintets alive for almost two centuries...performances radiate affection for the music and technical virtuosity. Exceptional recordings." --– Fanfare. “…the Westwod Wind Quintet is one of the finest wind quintets in the world. Their ensemble is wonderfully precise, clear and always exciting…when they play, the music truly comes alive.” International Double Reed Society Journal (Klimko).---- “probably the best group of this kind anywhere” New Orleans Courier
