MALCOLM MILLER applauds the Haffner Wind Ensemble and Min-Jung Kym in recital at Leighton House, London

The highlight of the first half was Mozart's masterly Quintet K452, where Min-Jung Kym tackled the concerto-like piano part with crystalline clarity and sensitive artistry, combined with the wonderful hues of the wind ensemble in blend or soloistic roles. This was music-making of a very high standard and a delight for the audience. The first movement sustained its drama with energy, permeated with subtle details of articulation; the operatic fluidity of the slow movement was enhanced by nuances of colour and expression, while the rondo finale bristled with just the right spirit of bonhomie.

The Haffner Ensemble and Min-Jung-Kym conclude their current UK tour in a Wigmore Hall concert on 9 May 2005 that, on the evidence of this recital alone, is certainly not to be missed.
