MOZART: Serenade No. 6 in D major (Serenata notturna)
GOUNOD: Petite symphonie for Winds (finale only)
Enjoy two tuneful and light-hearted works, composed a century apart by an Austrian and a Frenchman.
- Mozart’s “Serenata Notturna,” written by the 20-year-old composer is an enchanting early work. It opens with a dignified march punctuated by timpani to add a distinctive martial air to the otherwise sedate string orchestra.
- Gounod wrote his “Little Symphony for Winds” for his friend Paul Taffanel, the flute professor at the Paris Conservatoire, and that instrument gets a starring role. Gounod actually modeled the work after Mozart’s serenades.
This performance will be available for FREE streaming through April 9.
