Mozart Eine Kleine Nachtmusik K525-Flute and Piano-Schott


Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, also known as Serenade No. 13 for strings in G major, K. 525, is a chamber ensemble composition created by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756–1791) in 1787. The German title translates to “a little night music.” The piece is originally written for two violins, viola, cello, and double bass but is often performed by string orchestras. Mozart completed the serenade in Vienna on August 10, 1787, while he was working on the second act of his opera Don Giovanni.

While the title “Eine kleine Nacht-Musik” was used in Mozart’s personal catalogue, it was not intended as a special designation but merely indicated the completion of a small serenade. The work was not published until around 1827 by Johann André in Offenbach am Main, well after Mozart’s death.

This piece has been expertly arranged for flute and piano.

Works for Flute by W. A. Mozart

In spite of the reputed disfavour Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791) held towards the flute, he created remarkable and enduring music for this instrument that he openly expressed his dislike for. Among his notable compositions for the flute are two concertos, a double concerto featuring the harp, Andante in C, and four beautiful flute and string quartets.

These works were commissioned by Ferdinand Dejean, a Dutch physician and amateur musician, during Mozart’s visit to Mannheim in 1777/78. Mozart composed an alternative version, the ‘Andante’ KV 315 (285e), for the middle movement of the Concerto in G major KV 313, as it was deemed too challenging either in terms of playing technique or musical complexity for the client. Despite his reservations, Mozart’s flute compositions continue to captivate audiences with their timeless beauty and artistry.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Mozart was born in Salzburg in 1756 and was a hugely influential composer of the Classical era. He began composing music at the aged of 5 and was a child prodigy. He was also extremely competent on the keyboard and violin.  Mozart composed over 600 works including symphonies, chamber works, operas, and keyboard works amongst a huge array of other works.

Mozart composed works for flute including a concerto for flute and harp, concerti in G Major and D Major, Andante in C and flute & string quartets.
