The wind quintet has origins in the early 19th century, but it was during the 20th that it came of age. The sound and color made possible by the combination of flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon and horn were exploited to full effect by composers such as Carl Neilsen, Paul Hindemith and Darius Milhaud.  Once established, it became common practice to add instruments to vary the timbres in other ways by composers such as Charles Koechlin and Heitor Villa-Lobos (alto saxophone) or even the extreme case of Hans-Werner Henze's L'autunno 'for five players of wind instruments' which required each player to perform on many of the related instruments in the family of his main instrument.  The newly released box set in this feature provides a generous compendium of such works, all ably performed by the Berlin Philharmonic Wind Quintet.
