Eine kleineNachtmusik

Eine kleine Nachtmusik is also at the same time known as Serenade No. 13. Indeed,we find it listed in the Köchel Catalog as K. 525. With this in mind, Mozartcomposed the piece by all means in 1787 probably as a commission. To clarify,the title translates as a little night-music.Mozart originally scored the work in particular for an ensemble oftwo violins, viola, and cello with double bass (optional).In modern times the work is certainly usually performed by stringorchestras, though it is often in fact performed by a string quartet – with orwithout double bass.


A point often overlooked is that the name of the work derivesfrom the entry Mozart made in his private journal. He wrote: "Eine kleineNacht-Musik." This explains that Mozart was probably not naming thepiece, but only entering a record that he had completed it. Nevertheless, thework was published by and large in 1827. It had been sold to the publisher forthe most part in 1799 by Mozart's widow Constanze. Nowadays, it is onbalance extensively performed and recorded. Some critics ultimately claim that itis the most popular of all Mozart's works.


Early Years

Wolfgang AmadeusMozart (1756 – 1791), was a productive and significant Austrianclassical composer. Mozart displayed unusual musical capability from hisearliest childhood. It seems like he was already capableon keyboard and violin at the age of two. He started composingat age five and performed before European royalty.

Middle Period

At 17, Mozart was working as amusician at the Salzburg Royal court but grew agitated from boredom andtraveled to search for a more interesting job. While visiting Vienna in1781, he was summarily dismissed from his Salzburg job. Nevertheless, hedecided to stay in the capital (Vienna), where he achieved much fame but littleeconomic haven. Throughout his concluding years in the Capital, he composed manyof his most famous works: symphonies, operas, and concertos.

Final Period

The conditions surrounding his deathhave been much the subject of much conjecture and mythology. He composed morethan 600 works, many recognized as highpoints of symphonic, chamber,concertante, choral and operatic. He is among the most everlastinglypopular of classical composers, and his impact is substantial onsucceeding Western art music.
