The original sextet version of the Mozart Serenade For Winds, K.375 is ready
for your playing
pleasure.

The world premier MIDI-Karaoke performance of this work took place Friday
afternoon at Vince’s house. The modest circumstances of some of my previous
world premiers had gotten a little old, so I called my buddy Vince and asked
him if he’d play along with me. Our audience included David who was otherwise
busy constructing a patio cover but passed through from time to time with
redwood slats, nails and other hardware of the trade. I’ve included a
photo of
the august occasion.

Mozart composed K. 375 for the sister-in-law of the court painter von Hickel,
but he wrote afterward that he especially wanted the court chamberlain von
Strack hear something of his compositions, so he took some considerable care
with it. He observed that the six musicians lucky enough to have first
performed it “are poor beggars who, however, play quite well together.”

In any case, all of us poor beggars (it seems like that sometimes, doesn’t
it?)
can play it now. The original sextet version of the Serenade for Winds, K.375
is available for downloading.

I found two trios which Mozart evidently composed to go along with the second
Menuetto,
so you can download both of them and take your pick.

Happy playing all!
