Notes & Reviews:

The Ma'alot Wind Quintet has recorded Mendelssohn's fabulous A Midsummer Night's Dream. And what initially seems to be a makeshift solution for limited performance circumstances quickly proves to be a brilliant stroke of genius by these five musicians, who lend the popular score new colors and greater depth.

The complex structure of Mendelssohn's String Quartet in E flat major is marvelously and naturally rendered in this careful adaptation by the Ma'alot Quintet.

All of the arrangements for the Ma'a lot Wind Quintet are written by its clarinetist Ulf-Guido Schäfer. They fit like a tailor-made suit!
