“variation5” is the title of the wind quintet’s eponymous debut album – and variation5 is an ensemble of five very different characters, musicians who as winners of first prize in the ARD Music Competition are united by one thing: rather than cling to traditional performance practice and repertoire, they create new and exciting programmes and present them in their own cheeky, youthful, laid-back manner. This first joint album of theirs gives the five musicians the chance to present modern 20th-century classics for wind ensemble. They push atonal preconceptions to one side: the works are catchy and offer auditory variety as well as a relaxed balance of sound such as has rarely if ever been heard before.
