Ludwig van Beethoven March in Bb WoO29 (for Wind Quintet)

A minor work by a major composer...









When not composing all the mighty works for which he is known, Ludwig van Beethoven (1770 – 1827) also produced some great little potboilers for Harmonie, the German word denoting a small wind ensemble. Harmoniemusik was usually played outdoors, and the music ranged from small forms, such as marches, polonaises, ecossaises and other dances, to multi-movement works such as the Serenades of Mozart and the great Octet in Eb major Op. 103 by Beethoven himself. This particular march was originally scored for the then traditional line-up of two clarinets, two bassoons and two horns.
