Boxwood & Brass

Wednesday 23 March 2022 at 7:30 pm

Praised for ‘spectacular playing’ (Early Music Today) and ‘button-bright performances’ (Gramophone), Boxwood & Brass is a group of exceptional wind players dedicated to the performance on historical instruments of the chamber music and Harmoniemusik of the Classical and early-Romantic periods. Musical and scholarly virtuosity go hand-in-hand in Boxwood’s projects, which regularly involve tracing unknown works and arrangements in far-flung archives and reviving sounds unheard for 200 years.

This programme will explore the phenomenon of early-19th Century Harmoniemusik and the wide-ranging approaches of Viennese ensembles and their arrangers – including original Harmoniemusik for oboes, clarinets, horns, bassoons and contrabassoon by Hummel and Krommer, and the monumental anonymous arrangement of Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony from 1816.
