Cambini Quintet

Cottesloe Civic Centre, 109 Broome Street

The Cambini Quintet was first formed in 1994 to explore the rich repertoire of Classical and Romantic chamber music for woodwinds. The ensemble is named after Giovanni Cambini (1746-1825), who composed the first wind quintets in 1802.

Concert programmes are drawn from this enjoyable but neglected repertoire, which includes a wealth of superb works, ranging from the Classicism of the time of Mozart through to the full flowering of the French and German late-Romantics, revealing the warm sonority and varied tonal textures of the wind quintet.

This concert presents a magnificent quintet by Franz Danzi (1763-1826), a Romantic masterpiece by Peter Mueller (1791-1877), and a delightful work by the Quintet's namesake Giovanni Cambini.
