Brass, Reeds, and Percussion (March 11, 2017)

The music of Josef Triebensee is featured on today’s edition of Brass, Reeds, and Percussion. In 1772, Triebensee was born in what is today the Czech Republic, then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. At age 19, Triebensee was the second oboist at the Theater auf der Wieden in Vienna in 1791 when he played the premiere of Mozart's opera The Magic Flute. That explains why the second oboe part is so difficult. From age 12 to 34, he served in the emperor’s harmonie, which is the word used the classical period for the wind band. We’ll hear his Concertino for Piano and Harmonie after opening the show with “Shaking the Blues Away” by Irving Berlin.
