About this product
- DescriptionThese two serenades reflect Brahms's interest, during the years 1858 and 1859, in the symphonies of Haydn and Mozart, as well as the latter's exquisite <i>divertimenti</i>, scored for small instrumental ensembles. <i>Serenade No. 1 in D major</i> was in fact originally composed for nine woodwinds and solo strings, then later rescored for full orchestra. Its six movements graceful, melodious, and light-textured reflect the elegance of the Mozart model while entertaining us with Brahms's characteristically spacious, flowing themes.<i>Serenade No. 2 in A major for Small Orchestra</i> was a favorite of Brahms warm, intimate, and darkly colored because of the unusual absence of violins. Referring to the work as his beautiful opus, the composer often reflected on its delicacy and the severe test of performing its pensive <i>Adagio, </i> the third movement of five.This attractive, inexpensive edition combining both serenades in a single volume is sure to appeal to a wide audience of musicians and music lovers.</p>
