Cooper’s keyboard mastery is as searching as the music itself

BBC Music Magazine

Mozart produced a masterpiece with his Quintet
for Piano and Winds in E flat major, K 452, and
considered it ‘the finest work I have written to date’.

To show what stuff he was made of, the young Beethoven took up the challenge with his Op.16, a work for the same instruments, with the same structure and in the same key.

Which one is best? We are lucky - both are masterworks, played here by an outstanding pianist with the pre-eminent group of wind players.

Mozart Quintet for Piano and Winds in E flat major, K 452

Beethoven Quintet for Piano and Winds in E flat major, Op.16

And two masterpieces of the wind quintet repertoire by Hindemith and Carl Nielsen
