Harmoniemusik (wind music) was a favoured musical genre of the central European nobility in an era when cultural patronage was a means of displaying political power. This concert explores some of the most politically loaded music produced for the Harmonien at the time of the Napoleonic Wars and the decline of the Holy Roman Empire. Themes of tyranny, intrigue, freedom and revolution abound!

Boxwood & Brass’s sound is nothing short of revelatory’ Early Music Today
