Richard Strauss : Till Eulenspiegel
Adaptation and transcription by Franz Hasenohrl for clarinet, bassoon, horn, violin and double bass
Ludwig von Beethoven : Septet for strings and winds instruments in E flat major opus 20

The musicians of the Pelléas Chamber Orchestra created in 2004 by Benjamin Lévy, envisaged an ensemble with musical rediscovery, collegiality and authenticity at its core. Some musicians of the orchestra sometimes gather as a chamber ensemble which also performed in a past "Musique en Périgord" festival. The serenade for strings trio by Beethoven is a divertimento in the Mozart tradition. The septet for strings and winds instruments was composed between 1799 and 1800, and published in 1802 with a dedication to the empress Maria-Theresa of Austria. Exactly contemporary of his first symphony, the septet met with considerable success from the public and the critics. The subject of Till Eulenspiegel by Richard Strauss was inspired by a farcical character from popular literature of Northern Germany.
