Programme Note

After many years away from the limelight, pianist Christian Blackshaw has recently returned with a series of recordings that have established him at the top of his profession. This lunchtime he is joined by the Royal Northern Sinfonia Winds for Mozart’s Quintet for piano and winds, paired with anniversary composer Nielsen’s Wind Quintet. Mozart’s Quintet is a charming affair, described by the 28-year-old composer as ‘the best thing I have written in my life so far’, while Nielsen’s - which was influenced by Mozart’s - is a showcase for the different tones of the five wind instruments, a distinctive blend of contemporary and neo-Classical gestures.
