A master of music in all forms, Beethoven brought his genius to works as mighty as the great "Choral" Symphony and as intimate as the charming "Spring" Sonata. Less well known, but no less ingenious, are his delightful works scored for small Wind Ensembles. Intimate, melodious, and full of rhythmic life, this charming music brings a breath of fresh air to the world of fine chamber music.
Scored for various combinations of Winds (three works also include solo Strings), the music in this compilation includes the Three Duos, WoO 27; the Trio, Op. 87; two Sextets, Opp. 71 and 81b; the Septet, Op. 20; and the Octet, Op. 103. Beethoven's Serenade, Op. 25, and Rondino, WoO 25, round out this collection of the master's complete music for Wind ensembles.
Reproduced from authoritative early scores, Ludwig Van Beethoven: Complete Music For Wind Ensembles offers an inexpensive yet comprehensive volume to all lovers of chamber music.
