Description

Program:

• Beethoven – Quintet for Piano and Winds (Opus16)

• Beethoven – Octet in Eb (Opus 103)

The first piece, the Quintet for Piano and Winds is reminiscent of Mozart, but has Beethoven’s fingerprints all over it. It ends so enthusiastically that it is difficult for the listener to remain seated.

And, the Octet in Eb for two horns, two clarinets, two oboes and two bassoons, weaves one lilting melody into another and ends with a presto movement that one car hardly resist dancing to. Beethoven will never seem the same after this concert, performed by the California Chamber Orchestra.
