Overview

Classical meets Neo-Classical. Beethoven’s Octet for Winds is a delightful treat for the classical music lover filled with whimsical melodies reminiscent of Haydn and Mozart. Stravinsky’s The Soldier’s Tale is a theatrical work for seven musicians portraying the adventures of a deserting soldier who trades his fiddle (and his soul) to the Devil.
