Paris based Evidence Classics release their second recording of Michael Fine's music: Five for Five – Five Quintets for five woodwind soloists and string quartet. The recording was made following performances at Festival Mozaic in San Luis Obispo with musicians from leading musical organisations including the Metropolitan Opera, Cleveland Orchestra, Minnesota Orchestra, and Atlanta Symphony among others. These are all world premiere recordings. Michael Fine produced the recording. Jin Choi was engineer for the sessions at Cuesta College's Harold J. Miossi Center for the Performing Arts.  Evidence Classics are distributed world-wide by Harmonia Mundi/PIAS and can be heard on all the major streaming services including Apple Music, Spotify, and Idagio.

"It is a lot of fun to make music with close friends. It is a privilege to bring to life the music of a great composer, who also happens to be a friend. This recording is both.  Performing these pieces was so interesting. They look extremely simple upon face value, but even after a few measures we all realized that each phrase was very complex and detailed. We all got the best results when we relaxed and purged our minds of any restless thoughts – Michael's music, very much like Copland's, demands a certain amount of serenity. My colleagues and I hope we have done the music justice in this album." - Scott Yoo, Director, Festival Mozaic, Violin 1, Mozaic Quartet
