Acclaimed historic instrument ensemble Boxwood & Brass performs a programme exploring the phenomenon of early 19th-century Harmoniemusik.

This event takes place in the British Library Theatre. 

The programme will include movements from Harmoniemusik by Mozart, Hummel, and Krommer, and historical arrangements of Beethoven’s Sonata Pathétique and Seventh Symphony.

Boxwood & Brass: 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 event accompanies the exhibition Beethoven: Idealist. Innovator. Icon.
