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 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 basset horns, 2 bassoons, 4 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 2 additional clts playing with them.)

The horn 1/2 parts have the important 3/4 solos as cues.

There are alternative parts provided (for those groups who haven't got the full instrumentation) as follows: Basset Horns 1/2: Clarinets 1/2 Bassoons1/2: Bass Clarinets 1/2
