About The Music
Mozart’s mastery of the keyboard was perhaps matched only by his love of winds. As a liveried servant working for the hated Prince-Archbishop of Salzburg, Mozart composed many wind serenades for aristocratic entertainment. However, his greatest work for winds, the ‘Gran Partita’, was written only after he had left Salzburg and settled in Vienna, a musical revenge, of sorts, on his former employer. Described in the 1984 Academy Award-winning film, Amadeus, as “the voice of God”, this masterwork is presented here alongside his Quintet for Piano and Winds and the Piano Sonata No. 11.
