The Quintette à vent de Marseille and bass-baritone Jean-Christophe Maurice (second from left) blew up a storm at the second event in the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity’s Westminster concert series.

A wind quintet is a group of five musicians playing (most commonly) flute, oboe, clarinet, horn and bassoon. Add one bass-baritone and you’ve got quite a windy combination!
