Mozart's quintet made such an impression on his contemporaries that the young Ludwig van Beethoven also used it as a template for his own Op. 16. The unusual combination of instruments employed in these pieces, unique in Mozart's case, encouraged them to experiment with genres, blurring the boundaries between chamber music, symphonic writing, concerto, and operatic aria. WOLF's approach to this repertoire is guided by its use of historical instruments; they are joined for these works by fortepianist Anthony Romaniuk. WOLF is a Belgian collective of wind instrumentalists specializing in the interpretation of classical music on period instruments. The musicians play on original instruments or faithful copies and strive to maintain their historical characteristics. The specificities of ancient instruments guide the ensemble in the aesthetic approach of a repertoire mainly made up of great works from the 18th and 19th centuries.
