ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Wind Serenades of Mozart,
Plus Cosi fan tutte and The Marriage of Figaro

"It is sublime...it is hard to imagine a better set of performances with better sonics."
-American Record Guide, 1991

The wind octet consisting of pairs of oboes, clarinets, horns, and bassoons was one of the most popular instrumental combinations of the Classic and early Romantic eras. It had a special name—Harmoniemusik—which only later became used as a general term for any combination of wind instruments. The three original works by Mozart recorded here are without question among the finest (and most serious) works ever conceived for the
medium.
Arrangements of operas, such as these by Giovanni Went (Johann Nepomuk Wendt), were commonly made in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, primarily as courtly entertainment. In a performance like this, the specific dramatic situation of each aria seems insignificant. Meant as entertaining background music, these excerpts should be
joyously familiar to many listeners.
