About the Concert

Mozart's "Little Night Music" whistles the sparrows from the rooftops, so to speak. But he wrote more night music, and just as beautiful! His Serenade for Wind Instruments KV 388 was even groundbreaking, because it is less a serenade than a small symphony and its form influenced other composers such as Gounod or Strauss. Richard Strauss' Sonatina No. 1 is also heard, and its title "From the Workshop of an Invalid" is perhaps somewhat misleading; Strauss composed it in 1943, when he was recovering from a serious illness. He borrowed from Mozart the instrumentation of four horns and two bassoons and contrabassoon. They lend the whole a symphonic character, so that the title "Sonatine" - also in view of the temporal extension - seems a pure understatement.
