Ludwig van Beethoven
Trio in B Flat Major op. 11 “Gassenhauer”
Concerto “No. Zero” for Piano and Orchestra WoO 4 (arranged for piano and wind quintet by Ulf-Guido Schäfer)
The Creatures of Prometheus op. 43 (arranged for wind quintet by Ulf-Guido Schäfer)
Quintet for piano and winds op. 16

In early 2018, prizewinning pianist Markus Becker and the Ma’alot Quintet, which has likewise won a number of awards, released a joint CD featuring chamber music by George Onslow. The press showered the recording with unanimous praise: “a pure listening pleasure” (Hessischer Rundfunk), “a revelation” (Fono Forum). After that successful project with Onslow, the “French Beethoven”, the six musicians now use a series of arrangements to devote their 2020 recital to the multifaceted chamber music output of Ludwig van Beethoven, whose anniversary we celebrate this year. From the Gassenhauer Trio arranged for piano, clarinet and bassoon, they span the arc to Beethoven’s Quintet for piano and winds, originally written for that combination of instruments and premiered in April 1797 by the composer himself at the piano. Ulf-Guido Schäfer, the clarinetist of the Ma’alot Quintet, has written the other arrangements: the overture The Creatures of Prometheus already featured a series of beautiful wind solos in the original orchestra score, and the Piano Concerto “Number Zero”, written by Beethoven when he was only 14 years old, is an absolute rarity. A thrilling listening experience is in store for all!
