Mozart Serenade No. 12 in C Minor Nachtmusik
Mozart Serenade No. 7 in D Major Haffner
Known as one of the greatest composers of all time with countless symphonies, concertos and operas to his name, Mozart was equally at home composing smaller works for friends and patrons in Viennese society.
Serenades are often thought of as light, entertaining works but Mozart’s Nachtmusik breaks the mould. This dark, serious work was unlikely to bring a jovial sense of occasion to events held during Mozart’s lifetime, but the intricate detail and contrasting style of Nachtmusik has made this a popular concert work for wind ensembles.
From the serious to the sublime. Serenade No. 7 Haffner signified Mozart’s transition from a young prodigy to a fully-fledged composer in his own right. Composed to celebrate the wedding of Marie Elisabeth Haffner, Serenade No. 7 has the sense of majesty and joy you would expect from music for such an occasion.
