The Complete Mozart Divertimentos
Historic First Recorded Edition CD 1

The first work in this series, Divertimento No. 1, was given the double title “Concerto or Divertimento” by Mozart. It exists in two different versions: the original, recorded here—written in Milan in November 1771, for strings, two clarinets and two horns—and the Salzburg transcription, made in approximately 1773— which substitutes pairs of oboes, English horns, and bassoons for the clarinets and horns.
The fourth Tafelmusik sextet, Divertimento No. 13, has just three movements. The first is an Andante theme with variations, in which Mozart’s growing expertise in wind writing is evident. The other two movements are more typical—the standard minuet and trio, and a lusty rondo.
Characterized by ebulliently high spirits, Divertimento No. 2 is enormously rich in its wind writing. The minuets also contain an interesting
innovation: rather than a literal repeat of the minuets themselves after the end of the succession of minuet-trio alternations, Mozart writes out an embellished variation, with fuller orchestration. © 2002 Robert Levin
