MOZART: COMPLETE MUSIC FOR WIND INSTRUMENTS
What is incontestable is that these works show another aspect of his music which leads to a more complete picture of the genius and although even the greatest admirer would have to admit that whilst everything is not in Mozart’s highest class, there are movements which are uniquely sublime – one such is the Adagio in the Serenade for thirteen wind instruments. Indeed Peter Shaffer in his play and film Amadeus chooses this movement to give Salieri his first shattering experience of what glorious music his rival was capable of composing.
The Consortium Classicum, founded by Dieter Klöcker, recorded these works over a period of twelve years which is a similar number of years during which Mozart committed these works to manuscript.
