'Mephisto' - Mozart: Serenade No. 12 (III & IV); Shostakovich: Music from The Gadfly; Bartok: Romanian Dances / Carion Wind Quintet

Notes & Reviews:

Join acclaimed wind quintet Carion as they dance with the devil in their second Odradek CD: Mephisto. Carion have ventured beyond their usual repertoire to interpret colorful, contrasting and virtuosic pieces. They explore the darker, mysterious side of Mozart in his Serenade for Winds in C minor; toy with the unique colors of the wind quintet in witty arrangements of Shostakovich's stage and film music; explore mephistophelian connections in Bartók's renderings of tunes from Transylvania; and pay tribute to the great virtuosos of the past, Paganini and Liszt, with two brand-new arrangements. Their playing captures the mystique of those original works whilst opening up new horizons for the wind quintet.

Carion's debut album on Odradek, Nielsen's Footsteps, has been widely critically acclaimed, the ensemble's performance earning a five-star review from BBC Music Magazine. The CD was one of the top classical releases of 2015 on iTunes, and was hailed by ArtsDesk as "the best wind quintet disc in years".
