Les Vents Français (Emmanuel Pahud (flute), Paul Meyer (clarinet), Francois Leleux (oboe), Gilbert Audin (bassoon), Radovan Vlatkovic (horn)

A double CD of wind quintets from Warner Classics exclusive artist, Emmanuel Pahud, and his colleagues in Les Vents Français (Emmanuel Pahud, Paul Meyer, Francois Leleux, Gilbert Audin, Radovan Vlatkovic). Les Vents Francais celebrate French wind music at its elegant, witty best. Pahud is greatly in demand as a chamber musician and in this context has collaborated with most of the world's top soloists. As far as Pahud is concerned, ‘it’s like having two musical lives, but one musical world.’ Previously release in Japan the album won a Record Academy Award for Chamber Music.

Read Presto's complete review of this disc here.

“Les Vents Français is the wind-quintet equivalent of a supergroup. All its members...are international soloists in their own right, and their performances, as you'd expect, have a marvellous fluency and dazzling range of colour, even if there are moments when things get too indulgent.” The Guardian, 23rd January 2014 ****

“this set offers a fascinating portrait of inter-war musical manners in the last century.” The Independent, 25th January 2014 ****

“The joyous exuberance of Jacques Ibert's Trois pièces brèves makes a delicious opening to this double CD, played by five top French woodwind players with charming Gallic insouciance. There's so much to enjoy here.” The Observer, 26th January 2014 *****

“If you buy just one wind-quintet recording in your life, buy this fabulous double album. Les Vents Français are so precise, yet full of fun, subtleties and flights of virtuosity as they tackle 19th- and 20th-century classics...Impertinent, insouciant, irresistible.” The Times, 25th January 2014 *****

“Individual players come out of the texture where necessary, but all five are perfectly able to blend and sound as one unit...there’s much to enjoy here. I don’t think you could ask for five more accomplished players; every single one of them is at the top of his game, and for me at least there were several pleasing discoveries in terms of new repertoire. Highly entertaining!” James Longstaffe, Presto Classical, 27th January 2014

“individually, they play with attractive timbre and immaculate intonation and articulation. Collectively, they blend their colours with great finesse, within dynamics ranging from cushioned pianissimo to bright fortissimo, the latter enhanced by an upfront recording.” BBC Music Magazine, May 2014 ****

“Variety of style is a winning suit of this set, played throughout with terrific aplomb.” Gramophone Magazine, May 2014

“Wind players, professional or amateur, will need no second invitation to sample this new quintet collection...Non-wind-playing listeners keen to explore a hitherto unknown repertoire could also do far worse than start here...the playing on this new Warner is practically unbeatable.” International Record Review, May 2014

Haas, P:

Wind Quintet, Op. 10


Mládí (Youth), for wind sextet


Humoreske (Rondo). Schulstück für Bläserquintett

Acelga Quintett

With the exotic prelude by Pavel Haas, the door opens upon a strange and unfamiliar world of sound as the Acelga Quintet leads us on an exciting musical journey in the ensemble’s new GENUIN release. The five prizewinning musicians bring together works that are connected to Bohemia in the broadest sense: ranging from the late Romantic sonorities of Josef Bohuslav Foerster to Alexander Zemlinsky’s featherlight Rondo, Leoš Janáček’s tale of youth, and the humorous and offbeat musical mini-dramas by the above-mentioned Pavel Haas. The result is wind playing and chamber music at the very highest level: with their instrumental virtuosity and ensemble synergy, a truly superlative production!

“A most enjoyable release. The Acelga Quintett overcome in their stride the difficulties that these four works pose.” MusicWeb International, June 2017
