Little Symphony for Winds
for two flutes, two oboes, two clarinets, two horns, and two bassoons
by Franz Schubert (1797-1828)- Austrian composer
Arranged by Verne Reynolds
The classic wind octet consisted of pairs of oboes, clarinets, bassoons and horns. In this Little Symphony, two flutes have been included to provide a wider range and more brilliant top to the ensemble. The first three movements are from the Fünf Klavierstücke (1818) and the fourth movement is from the piano 4-hand version of the Overture in Italian Style in C (1817). The music is gentle, good natured, and rich in the familiar Schubertian qualities of graceful melodic invention and harmonic elegance.
