Mozart's Gran Partita: An Ambitious Serenade

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791)

Classical serenades by chamber ensembles were often light, outdoor entertainment in late 18th-century Vienna. As WRTI’s Susan Lewis reports, this week’s WRTI concert broadcast of the Philadelphia Orchestra features one of the more ambitious creations in the genre.

Listen to WRTI's Susan Lewis talk with Philadelphia Orchestra Principal Bassoon Daniel Matsukawa, Principal Oboe Richard Woodhams, and Principle Clarinet Ricardo Morales about Mozart's Gran Partita.
