Ensemble Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Pentaedre tackles the twin peaks of the Russian repertoire, Modest Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition and Igor Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring, in two astonishing transcriptions for wind quintet. Swiss horn player Stephane Mooser transcribed the Mussorgsky piece and American clarinetist Michael Byerly made the transcription of the Stravinsky.

American Record Guide, May/June 2014
Overall, these are great arrangements, and I suspect they will be picked up by many quintets. They would be fun to play, and they are a marvel to listen to. I recommend these to anyone.
