Aaron Hill, Susan Fritts, Rob Patterson, Elizabeth Roberts, and Kelly Sulick make up the Albemarle Ensemble. U.Va.'s resident faculty woodwind quintet, The Albemarle Ensemble will present a potpourri of musical works on Friday, February 8 at 8 pm. Together with pianist John Mayhood, they will perform W.A. Mozart's "Quintet in E flat major for Piano and Winds, K. 452." The piece, which Mozart considered to be one of his strongest works, was composed less than one year after the String Quartet No. 15 in D Minor, also featured on the series. In an effort to explore the rich and varied textures of the woodwind family, the Albemarle Ensemble will present several smaller chamber works by Frederic Duvernoy, Georges Auric, and Alberto Ginast era. The group will conclude their recital with Carl Nielsen's "Quintet for Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, French Horn and Bassoon, Op. 43," a conversation between instruments that was first performed in 1922 and quickly grew to become a staple of the genre.
