Mozart and Winds (2006)

Mozart and Winds

While Janáček’s buoyant Mládí (Youth) of 1924 parlays an effervescence reminiscent of Mozart’s youthful chamber works, Brahms’s forbidding Piano Quartet expresses the German Romantic’s characteristic severity. Brahms wrote to his publisher, “You may place a picture on the title page, namely a head—with a pistol in front of it. This will give you some idea of the music. I shall send you a photograph of myself for the purpose.” Mozart’s Serenade for Winds hints at none of the domestic (or career) anxieties that plagued him during the early 1780s; though sharing the dark key of c minor with the Brahms quartet, the Serenade ends on an idyllic note, unmistakable of Mozart.
