Illustrated talk by Stephen Johnson

Three masterpieces of the chamber wind repertoire by three epoch-making composers. Mozarts sublime Quintet, K452, in his own opinion  the best work I ever composed, combines the essence of Viennese Classicism with the composers distinctive operatic magnificence. Rimsky-Korsakov, one of the five composers who made up St Petersburgs Mighty Handful, brought his experience as an Inspector of Russias naval bands to bear on his writing for winds and brass. His exuberant and brilliantly colourful Quintet in B flat is all too rarely heard. The concert ends with Poulenc, leading member of Les Six, the unconventional group of composers active in 1920s Paris. All his flamboyant wit and wistful poetry is captured in the Sextet, Op. 100.
