Following on from the acclaimed first album of this series, the period wind ensemble Boxwood & Brass returns to Resonus with the second volume of Beethoven Transformed. In this major project, the group continues its exploration of the status of wind music in early-nineteenth century Vienna through arranged music of Ludwig vanBeethoven (1770–1827).The three arrangements presented on this disc – the Egmont Overture, Sonata Pathétique and the Seventh Symphony – were all published byBeethoven’s friend Sigmund Anton Steiner, an ambitious undertaking that shows nine-part Viennese Harmoniemusik in its most advanced stage of development.
