DECEMBER

The OSM is pleased to offer you two links to BEETHOVEN’S SUPREME SEPTET, webcast from December 8 to 21. Bringing together strings, woodwinds, and brass in an atypical ensemble formation for his time, Beethoven’s Septet gives all players an opportunity to shine through individualized writing. Composed with “taste and imagination” according to a contemporary critic, the work was so overwhelmingly successful from its premiere that it succeeded in exasperating its composer! (Re) discover this light-hearted piece, recorded by the OSM Chamber Soloists in 2018. Chamber music concert. Value of 2 links at $20 : $40.
