Description
Three of these melodious quintets by Belgian-born composer Martin Joseph Mengal (a pupil of Anton Reicha) incorporate themes by Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven and were published in 1824 by Ignaz Pleyel. The fourth cites Rossini's opera The Barber of Seville, first performed in 1816. Founded in 1992 with the goal of offering most authentic performances of 19th-century repertoire, the Reicha Quintet is composed of Michael Schmidt-Casdorff, flute; Hans-Peter Westermann, oboe; Guy van Waas, clarinet; Ulrich Hübner, horn; and Christian Beuse, bassoon. They often perform with leading period-instrument ensembles, including Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, Concerto Köln, and Orchestra of the 18th Century.

"The performance level here is far above the mean; they are true virtuosos on their instruments, possessing a thorough knowledge of their idiosyncrasies, strengths, and weaknesses, allowing them to tackle the manifold difficulties found in Mengal's scores. The music falls pleasantly on the ear, aided by balance and intonation that are exceptional…. Mengal's skills as an arranger and the undisputed mastery of the performers make this an ideal release for the musically curious; repeated hearings are unnecessary to enjoy the music."—Fanfare
