STANDARD: UPPER INTERMEDIATE, ADVANCED

Explore the wind ensemble music of the Classical and early-Romantic period, 1780-1820. Period instrument specialists from Boxwood & Brass will guide you through works by Mozart, Beethoven and Krommer as well as historical transcriptions of operatic and symphonic music. There will be a workshop for players of natural horn and those interested to try it! We are looking for oboe, clarinet, bassoon/contrabassoon, horn players (modern or natural) and double bass, of a confident grade 6 to conservatoire level. Students will leave with a broader knowledge of the repertoire for harmonie and the ensemble playing skills it requires, including elements of style and performance practice. You will also have the chance to hear or try period instruments.
