Adagio Cantabile (Mvt. 2) from Beethoven’s “Pathetique” Sonata No. 8, op. 13 by Ludwig van Beethoven, arranged by Stephanie Daige for Woodwind Quintet

One of Beethoven’s most beautiful melodies, the second movement of his iconic “Pathetique” piano sonata, sounds amazing arranged for woodwind quintet! The melody moves around between the different instruments, and the harmonies have a new richness with the variety of timbres. This is a challenging and enjoyable arrangement, suitable for advanced students or professionals.

Also available for woodwind quartet.

  • January 24, 2019 Great Piece for College Students

    I teach clarinet and coach wind quintets at a university, and I have taught the same quintets year after year, so it is nice to have something different. This transcription is so well done that if I didn't already know the piece, I might have thought Beethoven originally wrote...

    it for wind quintet. It has some challenging parts technically as well as balance-wise, so it is a great teaching tool. It is appropriate for collegiate-level study, or for more advanced high school students. It is very pleasing to listen to, and makes great concert programming. Our faculty quintet has also played it for background music at a dinner party.

  • January 18, 2019 Great transcription!

    I love Beethoven, and I love wind quintet music so this is perfect! I have played this piece on piano before, and I love the melody. I play clarinet in a wind quintet. I like the way the arranger moves the melody around between the different voices. We have fun...

    playing this piece.
