The former Berlin Philharmonic oboist Hansjörg Schellenberger directs this program which showcases performers from the Sydney Symphony performing music written by two of the greatest composers for wind instruments WA Mozart and P Hindemith.
Hindemith’s Concerto for Winds, Harp and Orchestra was written in 1949. It’s a modern concerto grosso, scored for flute, oboe, clarinet and bassoon with an orchestra of strings and brass. The clarinet plays Mendelssohn’s ‘Wedding March’ in the final movement. rising above the surrounding polyphony.
Mozart’s Gran Partita is a serenade in 7 movements for 13 instruments (twelve winds and string bass), giving it the alternative title of The Serenade No. 10 for winds in B flat major, K 361/370a. The piece was probably composed in 1781 or 1782 and uses a variety of musical forms within its 7 movement structure.
