2020 marks the 250th anniversary of the birth of Beethoven. Although he is best known for his chamber music for strings there are a number of woodwind works including the Octet in Eb. Last year CYWE successfully re-orchestrated Mozart's wind octets for the members of the ensemble as eighteenth century composers would have done to meet the demands of their patrons; we shall once again be replacing the French Horn parts with alto saxophones and oboe parts with flutes.

CYWE will also be exploring some of the octet arrangements made by Graham Sheen of classical overtures including Mozart's La Clemenza di Tito and Idomeneo.

Directed by woodwind specialist tutors, Helen Allen and Emily Myles
