Picture of Piano and clarinet quintets by Timothy Salter played by a line-up of outstanding international artists Artist: The Usk Ensemble and The Muse Piano Quintet

The Piano Quintet was written between February and June 1990. In March 2000 an alternative arrangement of the piece was made by the composer so that it may be performed either by piano and two violins, viola and cello, or by piano and violin, viola, cello and double bass. There are three movements, with short interludes on either side of the second movement.

The Muse Piano Quintet: Yulia Kupriyanova (piano), Ilya Movchan, Olivia Scheepers (violins), Ilona Bondar (viola), Jordan Gregoris (cello)

Elegy is in origin the slow movement from Chameleon, a concerto for alto saxophone with an orchestra of strings and percussion that also exists as a duo for saxophone and piano, composed in 2007. In 2014 the composer transcribed the movement, under its title Elegy, for clarinet and string quartet, in which form it is recorded here.

The Clarinet Quintet is in four movements each of which maintains a single momentum throughout except for the second movement with its slow opening. It was written in 2009.

The Usk Ensemble: Rozenn Le Trionnaire (clarinet), Francesca Barritt, Sophie Mather (violins), Jessica Beeston (viola), Rebecca Hepplewhite (cello)
