The Viennese Hofkapelle

Harmoniemusik from Vienna and Bohemia

Add to my Calendar 11-07-2015 19:30 11-07-2015 21:30 36 The Viennese Hofkapelle Period-instrument harmonie Boxwood & Brass present a gala concert featuring rarely-heard wind repertoire connected with Vienna and the Viennese Hofkappelle c. 1803–1810. The concert will include the first performance of a new edition of Hummel’s Octet-Partita in Eb S. 48. This edition was prepared by performer-scholar Robert Percival using newly discovered manuscript parts in the British Library. The additions to the score include a very substantial amount of performance directions giving a detailed insight into to the original performance practice surrounding this outstanding piece of harmoniemusik.  The concert also includes Triebensee’s operatic and characterful Partita in Eb (1803–4), Beethoven’s Sonata Pathetique in the anonymous arrangement issued by his publisher in 1810, both in new editions prepared from first edition parts. Krommer’s delightful Partita Op. 79 (c. 1810) completes the programme. Boxwood and Brass are the UK's only period-instrument group specialising in the harmoniemusik, the wind music of the Classical and Early-Romantic periods. Formed in 2013, by players from Europe’s leading period-instrument orchestras. It has rapidly gained a reputation for combining exuberant and engaging presentation, fascinating programming, in-depth scholarly research and a determinedly disrespectful approach to the musical canon. Inspired by the musical practices of the late 18th century, no great master is safe from re- invention, no famous work from transformation. Long-forgotten composers are disinterred and placed alongside their more enduringly successful colleagues; beloved melodies are reimagined in new contexts; the nobility and expressivity of historical wind instruments is placed centre stage and a jolly good time is had by all.  St Peter's Church, London DD/MM/YYYY
