Having studied the Preludes and Fugues in depth,I was curious as to how a wind quintet (and an unusual line of 'reed' instruments at that!) could do these gems justice. I am glad to say that these are revelatory performances.....think of the Shostakovich of the finale of the 6th Symphony..... Particular mention must be made of the superlative oboe playing that gives the top line of the fugues real 'bite'!
