Episode 17: Mozart Gran Partita
Mozart’s Gran Partita is a sublime achievement in wind music, easily capturing the many emotions of the heart — sometimes all within a single movement. It is a playfully subversive variation on the popular serenade, scored for 13 musicians, which flows naturally between simplistic melodies and elaborate passages, building to a joyful finale.
