The music of Bach is at the heart of Pentaedre’s new recording devoted to transcriptions of toccatas, fugues, sonatas, partitas and chorales for wind quintet. The album also includes the Quintet No. 3 by American composer David Maslanka (1943-2017), a chamber work inspired by Bach.A unique musical ensemble on the Canadian landscape, Pentaedre explores a diverse and original chamber music repertoire. Founded in 1985 by five artists-musicians, the quintet is recognized for the talent, technique, precision, and colour they bring to their performances. Pentaedre has toured extensively across Canada, and also in the United States, Europe, and the Middle East.
Pentaedre’s ten recordings include a chamber version of Schubert’s Winterreise by Normand Forget, which won a 2008 Opus Prize, and an arrangement of Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring and Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, nominated at the 2014 ADISQ gala.
