Beethoven - Symphony No 7 arranged for Winds - Netherlands Wind Ensemble

I'll happily express my ignorance and state that I've never heard a recording ofBeethoven in 1823; copy of a destroyed portrait by Ferdinand Georg Waldmüller. Beethoven 7 "reduced" to this winds orchestration -- 2 clarinets, 2 oboes, 2 bassoons, 1 contra-bassoon, 2 horns, double-bass, and timpani. This recording is apparently a re-working (by the Nederlands Blazers Ensemble) of a German publication of the work that has been around since Beethoven's day, though there's no solid evidence for his authorship of that orchestration. On this work, and on the Octet and Piano Quintet, the NBE (a select group of wind players from the Netherlands' top ensembles) do not disappoint. The recording is an absolute delight.--Amazon
