New Sounds for Old Winds #1

Saturday, 12 June 2021, 6.30pm

Mozart: Serenade in Eb K. 375 Beethoven arr. Percival: Harmonie after String Quartet op. 18 no. 1 (première). Kindly supported by Continuo Foundation.

The broadcast will begin on 12th Jun 2021 6:30pm (BST) with on-demand video available for 42 days after the show.

Mozart’s Serenade K. 375 is one of the most-loved pieces in the Harmoniemusik repertoire. It was once performed outside the composer’s window as he undressed for bed, by a group of wind players who either sought to honour their colleague, or perhaps encourage him to pass more work their way!

Boxwood & Brass will perform from a new edition by Robert Percival based on previously overlooked early nineteenth century performance materials that suggest how performers adapted the music shortly after it was written. We will also premiere a new Harmonie based on Beethoven’s first string quartet, inspired by Robert’s ongoing study of the techniques used – and liberties taken – by historical arrangers, many of whom were wind players themselves.
