The eminent Berlin Philharmonic Wind Quintet (BPWQ) has recorded a number of discs for BIS, with their latest CD here featuring three composers born in what is now the Czech Republic. The disc opens with a wind quintet by Anton Reicha, who in the early 19th century 'invented' the entire genre, and closing with one of the absolute pinnacles in 20th-century chamber music for winds, namely Janacek's Mladi ('Youth') from 1924. Framed by these two is Martinu's Sextet for piano and winds, written in Paris in 1929 and with echoes of both Bohemian music and jazz elements. The only work in this scored for 'regular' wind quintet is Reicha's Quintet in E flat major alongside three rarely heard works from Reicha which use a cor anglais instead of an oboe. A duo for piccolo and piano is also included here: Janacek's two-minute-long March of the Bluebirds; a work based on recollections of his youth.
