nosagcd 173 - POLLUX WIND QUINTET -

POLLUX WIND QUINTET was formed in 1997 in Helsingborg, Sweden, by leading musicians from the Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra: Johan Skeppstedt Andersson, flute; Carl Andersson, oboe; Per Johansson, clarinet; Åshilld Henriksen, French horn; and Magnus Nilsson, bassoon. Ever since its formation, the group has undertaken an active performance schedule, both in Sweden and abroad. Many composers have been inspired to write works directly for POLLUX, including Wolfgang Plagge, Lennart Fredriksson and Reine Jönsson. In the autumn of 2000, the ensemble members were invited to the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, England, as specialist chamber music instructors. In October 2003, POLLUX represented the vibrant chamber music life of Helsingborg at the “Swedish Radio Music City of the Year” festival, where they performed a highly acclaimed concert, which was broadcast live on radio from Dunkers kulturhus, a prominent cultural institution in Helsingborg. POLLUX has performed concerts in Darmstadt and Jülich in Germany, and has also collaborated with renowned pianists such as Hans Pålsson, Nico Benadie and Johan Ullén.
