New Sounds for Old Winds

BOXWOOD & BRASS
New Sounds for Old Winds is a series of three concerts inspired by the autonomy and creativity of wind players in Vienna c. 1790-1800. The much-loved Mozart Serenade K. 375 and Hummel Octet-Partita will feature alongside new, historically-inspired wind arrangements of music by Mozart and Beethoven, created by Boxwood & Brass bassoonist Robert Percival. 18th century wind players were more interested in the spirit of the music than the letter of the score. Together we will explore how they freely reinvented pieces we now consider sacrosanct, to express their own artistic identities.

The concerts will also be streamed online.
