Program Notes

Mozart's Serenade #10 for 13 winds, from which these movements are taken, can easily be called the foundation of wind music repertory. It is a great masterpiece that all who are interested in wind music should know. The transcription is remarkable in its fidelity to the original; even the sonority is well delineated. The Menuetto has both grace and weight, while the two trios serve as perfect foils -- the first dark and somber, while the second has the character of a Landler (country dance). The Rondo is a brilliant, boisterous and energetic.
