Members of the Academy of St Martin in the Fields team up to perform a swirl of works for winds and keyboard. In trios of Francis Poulenc, Heinrich Molbe, and Mikhail Glinka, pairs of wind instruments joust with the piano. Jean Francaix’s Divertissement is a light delight – a perfect warmup for Mozart’s Piano Quintet in E-flat, where the full group unites to showcase the brilliant ensemble work that the Academy is known for from their countless award-winning recordings.
