"Michael Fine's new record tells the story of five quintets, starring five wind soloists, mingling together with a string quartet, avoiding, answering each other. Michael Fine, who is widely acknowledged both as a producer and composer, explores in his quintets the bonds that these instruments share.
Michael Fine proves here his indubitable artistry, as he moves with equal ease in chamber music and orchestral music, displaying the same genuineness and simplicity that forge the strength of his works. "
