Description

LMIC 050

This is not simply well-written music for quintet; it is good music in and of itself. the seeming simplicity and sincerity of this music provides profound emotional and spiritual joy – all in all, it is perhaps the most beautiful material found in the quintet repertoire.

Review

Kultur-Port ,28.04.2017

 

"This Northwind is elegant, beautiful, bit impressionistic and very poetic"

 

Remy Franck, Pizzicato ,02.06.2017

 

This is a varied program with some tone poems and more abstract Latvian works, excellently served by the ensemble Carion. An outstanding performance and immaculate technical execution. Five stars!
