Brass, Reeds, and Percussion: January 28, 2023

Leopold Kozeluch (1747-1818) was a Czech composer and pianist who was a popular composer in Vienna during same period as Mozart and Beethoven. He was frequently hired to replace Mozart when Mozart quit a job or was fired—and was sometimes paid more than Mozart. Today’s edition of Brass, Reeds, and Percussion features his Octet Concertant for for oboe, flute, two clarinets, two horns, and two bassoons. The performance is augmented by a string bass, something that was very typical with harmonie music from this period.
