Notes & Reviews:

Oslo Kammerakademi, led by Oslo Philharmonic solo oboist David Friedemann Strunck, presents chamber music by Beethoven for wind octet on its debut CD. This repertoire ranges from the "Storm and Stress" compositions of the young Beethoven to the mature composer's Symphony No. 7, transcribed for wind octet with double bass.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
When Beethoven was working for the Elector of Cologne, who lived in Bonn, he wrote an octet for the elector's wind ensemble (2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 2 horns, double bass). The four-movement work, titled Partita like many such pieces for winds, was written in 1792-3 and published later as his Opus 103. The Rondo, WoO 25, marked Andante, is a noble seven-minute piece distinctly recognizable as by Beethoven. Beethoven's Seventh Symphony (1812) was first performed in December 1813 and published in 1816. It was published in several forms, including a nine-part instrumentation for winds (pitched in G).
