Program Notes

The Serenade No. 10 for winds in B-flat major, K. 361/370a, is a serenade by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart originally scored for thirteen instruments: twelve winds and string bass. The piece was probably composed in 1781 or 1782 and is often known by the subtitle "Gran Partita", though the title is a misspelling and not in Mozart's hand. It consists of seven movements.

The serenade is in seven movements as follows:

I. Largo. Molto Allegro
II. Menuetto
III. Adagio
IV. Menuetto. Allegretto
V. Romance. Adagio
VI. Tema con variazioni
VII. Finale. Molto Allegro

The work is scored for two oboes, two clarinets, two basset horns, two bassoons, four horns and double bass. The double bass is occasionally replaced by contrabassoon; however, the part is clearly for the former as there are pizzicato markings at points.

I have created 2 additional flute parts to cover a dectet group who have two additional clarinets playing with them.)
