I saw the Orchestra Révolutionaire et Romantique play Beethoven's 6th and 7th on Friday. They performed all 9 symphony's on period instruments. There was of course no tuba. It was very interesting watching and listening to the french horns play their parts with no valves. It was a very different sound. I personally enjoyed hearing them played the way Beethoven intended for them to sound, but am used to the sound of the modern brass and woodwind instruments.
