Haffner Wind Ensemble
Mozart’s Serenade for 13 Winds

Beethoven Rondino WoO25
Dvorak Serenade Op 44
Mozart Serenade ‘Gran Partita’ K361

Led by Britain’s undisputed king of the oboe – and all-round force-of-nature great musician – Nicholas Daniel, the Haffner Wind Ensemble features a roll-call of outstanding wind soloists who come together for equally outstanding chamber music performances. Their concert here is crowned by Mozart’s extraordinary Serenade for 13 Winds (actually 12 winds and double-bass!) whose expansive seven-movement structure includes an Adagio that features so strikingly near the start of Peter Schaffer’s play/film Amadeus. As Salieri so memorably recalls in his old age : ‘This was no composition by a performing monkey. This was a music I’d never heard. Filled with such longing, such unfulfillable longing. It seemed to me that I was hearing the voice of God.’
