Beethoven more or less

Following their wonderful performance at Conway Hall in September 2018, I Musicanti make a welcome return in an all Beethoven programme, as a prelude to Beethoven's upcoming anniversary year. A mixed instrument chamber ensemble, I Musicanti comprises some of the most experienced and respected musicians to be found in the UK, handpicked by the group’s founder and artistic director, the international double bass virtuoso and conductor Leon Bosch.

Pre-concert talk | Robert Hugill, 5:30pm - Arrangement, transcription and popularisation

Arrangements and transcriptions were everywhere in the late 18th and 19th centuries, from Beethoven symphonies for piano duet to Rossini for wind octet. Beethoven even did some himself, producing a piano trio version of one of his symphonies, and encouraged his contemporaries to write transcriptions of his music.
