Henri Tomasi: Five Secular And Sacred Dances, For Wind Quintet, by the Lumo Quintet
A gust of expression in these wind works
This piece by Tomasi demonstrates that true emotive versatility of a wind quartet. From dance to dance, different emotions shine through the music while the melodies are passed from instrument to instrument. Allow your ears to dance along to this wonderful wind music. Born to a labouring class family in 1901 in Marseille to Corsican parents, Henri Tomasi’s body of work was much inspired by his context. Many of his works find themselves caught between the colourful exoticism of Corsica and the tragedies of two world wars.
