An hour of classical masterpieces performed by the ANAM Musicians and guest artists with the chance to catch up with friends over a cup of tea.
The Serenade K370a has long been known by its more famous nickname, ‘Gran Partita’, a title not given by Mozart but scribbled on the manuscript by an unknown hand. Essentially meaning ‘big wind symphony’ the title is not inaccurate as the work uses a large ensemble. An impeccable musical achievement, the Serenade includes elaborate movements of symphonic proportions, irresistible dance sections, one of Mozart’s greatest Adagios, and a delectable set of six variations before reaching a rondo finale of fleet-fingered liveliness. It’s been likened to a guided tour through a grand chateau, each room dazzling with splendour, opulence and beauty.
