"Cambini Quintet"
with guest pianist, Anna Sleptsova

3pm Sunday 30 June 2024

Callaway Auditorium
University of Western Australia

The Cambini Quintet is dedicated to exploring the rich repertoire of Classical and Romantic chamber music for woodwinds, with a special focus on the combination of flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon and French horn, known as the "Wind Quintet."  The ensemble is named after Giovanni Cambini (1746-1825), who composed the first known works for this grouping, published in 1803.

Concerts by the Cambini Quintet draw exclusively from this enjoyable but neglected repertoire, which includes a wealth of superb works from the time of Mozart through to the full flowering of the European late-Romantics, revealing the warm sonority and varied tonal textures of the wind instruments, occasionally in combination with piano.

This programme opens with an evocative "Aubade" for woodwind trio by French composer Paul de Wailly (1854-1933), followed by a magnificent quintet by Franz Danzi (1763-1826), and concludes with the quintet for piano and winds by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov (1844-1908), a masterpiece of Russian Romantic chamber music.
