Album information

Continuing to explore the Harmoniemusik repertoire, the Wind Soloists’ new recording features youthful, entertaining and brilliant music by a young man who took Vienna by storm in the 1790s: Ludwig van Beethoven.  

All around the world, critics cheered the SCO Wind Soloists’ previous album of Mozart Divertimenti: "superb in every way" (Fanfare),"a joy from start to finish" (Europadisc), "sparkles with joy and chuckles with good humour" (BBC Radio 3 ‘Record Review’).

The underrated Octet is a technically challenging concert piece in the Mozart tradition, but with the flair and unpredictability of the young Beethoven. In the Sextet, Beethoven exploits the differing characteristics of each instrument to great effect with the SCO’s legendary interplay on full display. Another gem is the short but sweet Rondino, which is full of subtle details, exquisite melodies and exhilaratingly high-speed horn playing.

The SCO Wind Soloists comprise Maximiliano Martín and William Stafford on clarinet, Peter Whelan and Alison Green on bassoon, Alec Frank-Gemmill and Harry Johnstone on horn and Robin Williams and Rosie Staniforth on oboe.
