Program Notes

We selected songs from many Mozart works regardless of genre, and compiled them into three movements. It is an ensemble work that is decorated with masterpieces that were rarely played in brass band. Between the beginning and each movement, there are three chords called Freemasonry's Liturgy that appear in the opera Maho.

The 1st movement is the first half of Symphony No. 40, 1st movement, and the beautiful melancholy melody is impressive.

The second movement is the Countess Aria sung in the second act of the opera The Marriage of Figaro. It is a masterpiece of soprano that expresses the sadness of the Earl's heart moving away from himself.

The third movement is Allegro Figuration, which is a medley of songs written in a fast-paced style. The medley include the overture of the opera The Marriage of Figaro, Aine Kleine Nahat Musik, Piano Sonata No. 16, Symphony No. 25, From the opera Mafu Aria of the Queen of the Night, Cursed from Requiem andTurkish March.

Famous melodies that you have heard once run around in all directions. The title Mozartarium is a coined word that I came up with when I played at Saitama Sakae High School at Mozartium in Salzburg in 2012. It has also been influenced by Stevie Wonder's album Music Alien ~ Music Aquarium, which I have always admired for a long time, and I hope that you can feel the nuance like "Mozart's space." Please play with Mozart's tone, dynamics and phrasing in mind. (Akira Shishikura)
