Music in Vienna: Boxwood and Brass

21/02/2017

Boieldieu arr. Anon: Overture Jean de Paris Triebensee : Partita in E flat Beethoven arr. Anon: Symphony no. 7 The imaginatively named group Boxwood & Brass specialise in Harmoniemusik (for wind instruments) from the two or three decades either side of 1800. This is a fascinating and, with the exception of some Mozart examples, a relatively unknown repertoire. The Harmonie usually described an ensemble of up to fifteen players, generally with pairs of oboes, clarinets, horns and bassoons, sometimes supplemented by a wide range of other instruments. With its roots in Viennese saloon and Imperial music, a parallel tradition was growing in France through military and revolutionary bands.
