Rondino in E flat
Dvořák Serenade for Wind Instruments op.44
Mozart Serenade no.10 Gran Partita K361
   
Gábor Takács-Nagy  conductor

Containing some of the most extraordinarily inventive and uplifting music ever written for wind instruments, Mozart’s Serenade no.10 for 13 instruments is rightly regarded as one of the jewels of Classical music. Dvořák’s own Wind Serenade, written a century later, takes its starting point from the 18th century tradition, but is woven into a gorgeously lyrical and dance-infused work. Rondino, a charming early wind Octet by Beethoven completes the programme. 

“This was a music I'd never heard. Filled with such longing, such unfulfilled longing, it had me trembling. It seemed to me that I was hearing the very voice of God.”
Antonio Salieri, speaking of K361, Mvt. III Adagio in the play Amadeus, by Peter Schaffer
