Notes & Reviews:

In previous generations wind instruments tended to feature as soloists with orchestral - principally strings - accompaniment. In Mozart's time the wind band, probably more for performances in the open air than within the domestic environment, became popular and Mozart was keen to show his prowess in this field as he did in others. So whilst these works cannot claim to be as profound as the serious chamber music in many there is an infectious humor even joviality. What is incontestable is that these works show another aspect of his music which leads to a more complete picture of the genius and although even the greatest admirer would have to admit that whilst everything is not in Mozart's highest class, there are movements which are uniquely sublime - one such is the Adagio in the Serenade for thirteen wind instruments. Indeed Peter Shaffer in his play and film Amadeus chooses this movement to give Salieri his first shattering experience e of what glorious music his rival was capable of composing.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born on January 27, 1756 in Salzburg and is renowned for his genius for composing operas, symphonies, concertos, chamber music and choral works. However his music for wind instruments, beyond the Gran Partita (Serenade for thirteen wind instruments) and the Serenades in E flat and C minor, is rarely played and even the authenticity of some of the works is questioned. In this 7-CD collection, the Consortiium Classicum performs Mozart's complete serenades and divertimentos for wind instruments. Founded by Dieter Klocker, recording these works took over a period of twelve years - a similar number of years during which Mozart committed theses works to manuscript.
