This performance will explore the instrumentation and compositions of Harmoniemusik. This style of music gained popularity in European courts in the 18th and early 19th centuries. Typically, the instrumentation consisted of pairs of oboes, clarinets, horns and bassoons. However, composers quickly began adding other instruments such as flutes, trumpets and strings. These early compositions served as early examples of what is now known as the standard Classical era symphonic form.
Petite Symphonie – Charles Gounod
