Program Notes

Mozart’s ability to seamlessly juxtapose operatic lyricism with endearing folk melodies is brought to life in his Serenade No. 11. Clarity of texture and form allow individual voices to sing with nuance and expression, and seasoned performers will relish the opportunity to perform this piece. Although the complete work is not as lengthy as Mozart’s Serenade No. 10, its duration may require the performance of selected movements; however, the flow from one movement to the next reflects the composer’s design and should be retained if at all possible.

- Notes from Great Music for Wind Band


The Serenade No. 11 for Winds in E-flat major K. 375, was written by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart on 15 October 1781 for St Theresa's day.

The original version of the serenade is scored for six players: two clarinets, two horns, and two bassoons. Mozart later revised the score to add parts for two oboes.
