Beethoven: Rondino for Woodwind Octet, E-flat Major, WoO 25

Beethoven's Rondino for two oboes, two clarinets, two horns and two bassoons was written in the same year as the E-flat Woodwind Octet, 1792. Some suspect that the Rondino may have been intended as part of the Octet.

Listen for the horns at the end of the piece. They echo the refrain with specially made mutes modelled after originals from the period.

Ensemble Zefiro performed the Rondino in the La Redoute villa near Bonn as part of the 2007 Beethovenfest. The Italy-based group specializes in 18th century woodwind music and plays on original instruments or replicas of period instruments.
