The arrangement holds fast to Beethoven's own writing and also reflects the fashion of chamber arrangements of symphonic works in the classical era in a contemporary setting.

This particular arrangement corresponds to the instrumentation of  Cimadors arrangement of Mozart's 'Grand Symphonies', for flute, string quintet, double bass and obligato keyboard from which the group will also perform the famous Symphony no. 39

Program
Mozart - String Quintet in G Minor, 1 st Movement
Beethoven - Piano Concerto no. 2, Chamber version arranged by Steven Yates In the style of Cimador's arr. Of Mozart's Symphonies
Mozart - Symphony no. 39 arr. Cimador For flute, string quintet, double bass and obligato keyboard
