Music Millennium

Music for wind ensemble was a regular part of entertainment in Beethoven's day, and his Octet was composed for the skilled players in the service of his patron, the Archbishop-Elector in Bonn. The charming and skillfully written Sextet is also 'from my early things and, what's more, was written in one night'; impressing a critic of the time 'by it's splendid melodies, leisurely harmonic flow, and wealth of new and surprising ideas.' Wind partitas often opened with a March, and the Rondino was originally intended as the Finale to the Octet, two suitable pieces to complete this fashionable Beethoven soiree.
