In the Wind Quintet, perhaps the most famous work by the forgotten German master August Klughardt, each player takes a turn as the soloist. Felix Mendelssohn's Quartet, on the other hand, is a timeless classic, a work of passion, melancholy and emotional overtones for four virtuosos that anticipates the famous Violin Concerto. In the Gobi Canticle by contemporary Chinese-American composer Lei Liang, Mongolian melodies provide the backdrop for a shamanistic ritual.
