Nicolas Mori’s arrangement of Beethoven’s 7th Symphony was published in the 1820s by Elizabeth Lavenu, widow of the London violinist and publisher Lewis Lavenu, who died in 1818. She married Mori, a virtuoso violinist, in 1819 and together they took over her late husband’s business. The scoring for flute and string sextet is highly accomplished, the violas often pairing the flute to complete the parts originally assigned to the winds. The fresh dimension this arrangement brings to Beethoven’s timeless masterpiece will be a revelation to chamber groups and audiences alike.
