Description
An American ensemble founded in 1976, the Borealis Quintet have a stellar discography and have been nominated for a Grammy for best instrumental performance.

"An enticing collection of new music … beautifully played…. All three pieces are written in a straight-ahead tonality that should appeal to the most conservative of listeners, and yet there is an elegance and thoughtfulness in all three works that should not offend more adventuresome ears."—Fanfare

"The woodwind quintet can be a difficult medium because of balancing problems. The Borealians seem to resolve these problems with ease and style. The compositions on this disc are all congenial and easy to listen to. Eric Ewazen's Roaring Fork Quintet is an example of lively neo-classicism, well written for the instruments, while John Steinmetz's Quintet is darker, with a wider range of color and harmony…. Miguel del Aguila's Second Quintet is a sometimes laconic, always listenable piece, with a lively Caribbean dance-influenced II and a dark, brooding III."—American Record Guide
