Notes & Reviews:

The twenty-five wind quintets won Reicha immediate acclaim, despite being unusual not only in their combination of instruments but the prominence given to each soloist in turn. They possess an abundance of melodic invention, with tonal colours skillfully and evocatively explored.

"The Michael Thompson Wind Quintet give expert accounts of these attractive pieces. Their playing is very fresh and alive, and Reicha can be both rewarding and interesting—it is finely wrought and pleasing. Very good sound." -Penguin Guide
