Wigmore Monday Lunchtimes: Ensemble Zefiro

Live from Wigmore Hall, London, period-instrument group Ensemble Zefiro performs Mozart's large-scale Serenade for winds in B flat, K361, 'Gran Partita'.

Live from Wigmore Hall, London, crack period-instrument group Ensemble Zefiro performs Mozart's large-scale Serenade for winds in B flat K361, "Gran Partita". Serenades were a popular form of outdoor evening entertainment in late 18th-century Austria, and though the exact occasion for the writing of this piece (lavishly scored for 13 players - 12 winds plus double bass) is unknown, its posthumous title refers to its unusually grand scale and seriousness.

Introduced by Sean Rafferty.
