    DECLINE AND FALL

    Harmoniemusik from the twilight of the Holy Roman Empire

    Beethoven (arr. Starke and Percival)
    Egmont – Overture and Incidental Music
    Mozart (arr. Triebensee)
    La clemenza di Tito – excerpts
    Beethoven (arr. Anon 19th–century)
    Symphony No. 7

    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
