Les Vents Français
6 Apr 2018
Composer: Danzi, Mozart, Devienne, Pleyel
Other participants: Daniel Giglberger, Munich Chamber Orchestra
The members of Les Vents Français, which has been described as "the wind-quintet equivalent of a supergroup" join the Munich Chamber Orchestra and conductor Daniel Giglberger in five examples of the sinfonia concertante. The form flourished in the decades around 1800, particularly in Paris and Mannheim, and the works here are by Parisian luminaries Pleyel and Devienne, Mannheim resident Danzi, and a genius who visited Paris and took inspiration from the music of Mannheim: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
