Wind Quintet of the Sächsische Staatskapelle Dresden
"...How ingenious, the way the musicians were able to inspire their interpretation of the arrangement between themselves. It was refreshing and joyous at the same time..."(Cologne Bonn Music Calendar)
Unusually homogenous on the one side, displaying technical finesse and brilliant solo performances on the other. That and a lot more is to be admired when the Dresden Saxony State Orchestra is performing.
The five soloists have formed an ensemble to continue the long tradition of the renowned wind section quintets. Sabine Kittel, Wolfram Große, Bernd Schober, Jochen Ubbelohde and Joachim Hans have one thing in common, their virtuosity, joyous playing and a refreshing spirit. The musicians draw from a manifold repertoire of varying epochs. Whilst being serious about the quality of the music there is a light hearted spirit to it. From the wistfulness of the Mozart arrangements, extending to the Prokofjews cheerful "Peter and the Wolf", from Beethoven to Barber, their style is eclectic. Conversely, whether performing as a trio or even as a sextet, this ensemble is always outstanding.
Whether classical or modern, whether arranged or original scores, these soloists of the Dresden Saxony State Orchestra offer their audience a plethora of musical excellence.
