It plays here Beethoven's Woodwind Sextett (rearranged for quintet) but also Nielsen's Woodwind Quintet, Montague's Bolt from the Blue, Lizst Grand Etudes by Paganini and Ibert's Three short pieces.

Handel's work lends itself to the most excessive scenic daring. That of Oleg Kulik, the Russian artist who designed a striking spatial of Vespers of the Virgin by Monteverdi in 2009, is again unusual.
