Nicolai RIMSKY-KORSAKOV (1844-1908) : QUINTET PIANO & WINDS - SEXTET - Kocian Quartet, Wind Quintet

In stock


An original but logical pairing of these works written jointly in 1876 for a competition organised by the Russian Music Society. ‘The jury found my sextet worthy of an honourable mention but did not take my quintet into account.’ In a sort of posthumous revenge, he might point out that the name of the winner, Eduard Nápravník (1838-1916), is barely known outside of musical reference works.
