Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Orchestration

solo flute, solo harp, 2 oboes, 2 horns, strings

Notes

The patron who commissioned the Concerto for Flute and Harp never paid for the piece and may never have performed it, but the result was a charming and joyous work for what was, at the time, an unusual instrumentation. Throughout the course of the work, Mozart deftly handles the technical limitations presented him by an instrumental combination for which he had never written.

Orchestration

Notes

Mozart’s final three symphonies are unusual for their time. When we hear the word “symphony”, our mind leaps to the great music dramas of Beethoven, Brahms, and Mahler. But in the 18th century, a symphony was a much lighter entertainment, frequently performed with little to no rehearsal. These three symphonies, on the other hand, are the composer’s longest and feature a level of structural complexity and experimentation unusual in contemporary works.
