Notes and Editorial Reviews

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s music for wind instruments, is rarely played and even the authenticity of some of the works is questioned. In previous generations wind instruments tended to feature as soloists with orchestral – principally strings – accompaniment. In Mozart’s time the wind band, probably more for performances in the open air than within the domestic environment, became popular and Mozart was keen to show his prowess in this field as he did in others. So whilst these works cannot claim to be as profound as the serious chamber music in many there is an infectious humour even joviality. What is incontestable is that these works show another aspect of his music which leads to a more complete picture of the genius and although even Read more the greatest admirer would have to admit that whilst everything is not in Mozart’s highest class, there are movements which are uniquely sublime – one such is the Adagio in the Serenade for thirteen wind instruments. Indeed Peter Shaffer in his play and film Amadeus chooses this movement to give Salieri his first shattering experience of what glorious music his rival was capable of composing. The Consortium Classicum, founded by Dieter Klöcker, recorded these works over a period of twelve years which is a similar number of years during which Mozart committed these works to manuscript.

 Light music nicely done July 3, 2012 By Dundas I.  Flaherty (Malibu, CA) See All My Reviews "Am not an expert, but enjoyed this set. The music is light, melodic. The orchestration is interesting, and lovely if you enjoy winds. The performance is loving and entirely competent without calling attention to itself, and seems true to what the music wants. Overall, it gives me the same feeling as Angela Hewitt's Bach partitas, brightening the room and the hour while I read or do email. It's not big Beethoven or Berlioz, but that isn't what I was looking for when I bought it." Report Abuse
