DWP are a group of wind players who from 1971 used to rehearse with Marshall Stoneham at his house in Dorchester, and played together over forty years with a good deal of continuity of personnel – mostly for fun, but also in concerts and for occasions. The repertory, based on the rich variety of classical and modern serenade music, ranged from the 16th century to the 1990s, from Mozart to Scott Joplin, from traditional to rare works. Many new works and arrangements were made for them, and they gave the first modern performances in recent years of works by Weber, Schubert, Beethoven, Balakirev, and others, including the Earl of Abingdon.

To include excerpts from some of Marshall’s favourite pieces – Gounod Petite Symphonie, Mozart and Strauss octets, Earl of Abingdon’s March, and a sextet by Seiber which famously includes a sneeze!
