Description: These transcriptions of orchestral works for wind octet (period instruments and with flute and oboe instead of the usual two oboes) are by the leader of this ensemble. Since this was a practice in Méhul's own time, there is a certain authenticity to it, particularly for the Revolutionary works whose solemnity is enhanced by the wind timbres. Les Jacobins;  Mathieu Lussier (bassoon).
