- Beethoven Rondino in E flat Major
- Dove Figures in the Garden

Back in the Classical era, they didn’t have stereo systems – they had wind ensembles instead, and even the greatest composers excelled at writing music for wind instruments that was colourful, ear-catching and out to entertain. Beethoven was no exception, and today the CBSO’s wind section plays two of his happiest masterpieces, as well as a magical homage to Mozart by Jonathan Dove.
