Septets

About this playlist

Lucky number seven. Beethoven's Septet from around 1800 (for clarinet, bassoon, horn, violin, viola, cello, and double bass) was hugely influential on many composers both at the time and still today, although the exact instrumentation does often deviate from Beethoven's model. Some of the pieces in this list weren't officially titled as 'septets' per se, but they all feature seven players one way or another.
