Wind octet (2ob - 2clar - 2hn - 2bsn - dble bsn)
Harmoniemusik. Composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791). Edited by Eric James. Arranged by Johann Nepomuk Wendt.

Although the source - a set of parts preserved at the Florence Conservatory - does not expressly mention Wendt as the arranger, the manuscript's location and handwriting make it absolutely clear that this is a genuine Wendt.

Although the source - a set of parts preserved at the Florence Conservatory - does not expressly mention Wendt as the arranger, the manuscript's location and handwriting make it absolutely clear that this is a genuine Wendt.

Johann Nepomuk Wendt was an oboist at the Vienna Burgtheater, where he seems to have been a very assiduous arranger of Mozart operas for wind ensembles. Since "Cosi fan tutte" (MR 1876/77), "Die Entfuhrung aus dem Serail" (MR 1826) and "Le nozze di Figaro" (MR 1825 a/b) have been available as MUSICA RARA editions for quite a while now, it seemed logical to add "Idomeneo" to the collection.

Although the source – a set of parts preserved at the Florence Conservatory – does not expressly mention Wendt as the arranger, the manuscript's location and handwriting make it absolutely clear that this is a genuine Wendt. The various numbers are concentrated, and the vocal parts are supplied with ornaments that are idiomatic to the instruments – typical stylistic characteristics of Mozart's day. Wendt's arrangements thus provide a fascinating insight into the ornamental practice of the late 18th century.

Danzi nannte seine Konzertstucke ,,Pot-pourris und liess alle drei Werke unter diesem damals anerkannten Gattungstitel veroffentlichen.

Die Fassung fur Klarinette und Streicher wird mietweise angeboten.
