Grand Mozart

Mostly Mozart

Details

An hour of wonderful music and the chance to catch up with friends over a cup of tea.

Classical masterpieces performed by the orchestra of the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) and acclaimed guest artists.

The Serenade K.361 (370a) 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.
