Mozart: Serenade in Eb K. 375

Beethoven arr. Percival: Harmonie after String Quartet op. 18 no. 1 (première)

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.
