Wigmore Hall: London Conchord Ensemble

Live from London's Wigmore Hall, the London Conchord Ensemble plays music for piano and wind instruments by Poulenc and Beethoven - and a novelty by Mozart.

Live from London's Wigmore Hall the London Conchord Ensemble plays music for piano and wind instruments by Poulenc and Beethoven - and a novelty by Mozart originally composed for Glass Harmonica.

Poulenc's Sextet is one of his most outgoing and cheerful pieces. Beethoven's Quintet is an early work that gives the horn-player a good work-out. Mozart's Adagio and Rondo was written for a chamber group that included a novelty instrument that is basically a set of tuned wine-glasses!

Presented by Fiona Talkington.

Poulenc: Sextet for piano and wind
