Mozart Serenades for 3 instruments or 1 instrument & piano, Volume 1 in C major (K.439b/1) (Score & 3 parts)
These books of Mozart’s “Serenades" aim to encourage musicians to experiment with different sounds: the trios can be played by practically all instruments (strings, winds, piano) current today in home music-making. This is absolutely in agreement with their historical origins.
Mozart composed the five wind Divertimenti at a time when he was experimenting with various combinations of sound in his musical “private life", free from the pressure of commissions and popular success. While playing music with friends, he would exchange the instruments, thus producing ever new textures.
Thus the “Serenades" lend themselves just as much as ever to an interpretation with varying tone colours and instruments, and will hopefully stimulate musicians’ imagination and delight in experimentation.
