Serenade B dur


<< Previous Next >>

Mozart wrote Serenade No.10 in B-flat in the early1780s in the heydays of
his creative activities. It is notable for its professional maturity,
musical freshness and almost symphonic scale. He extended a very popular at the time ensemble of the wind instruments, octet, to thirteen instruments.
Actually the group was transformed in a small orchestra. It consisted of two oboes, two clarinets, two bassethorns, four horns, two bassoons, and a double bass. Such a group made it possible for Mozart to compose a work, by the words of a contemporary, "glorious and grand, excellent and sublime".
