Born on this day in 1756. (Hey, I was born in ’56 too!)

Below you’ll find some of his Gran Partita, pieced together from various groups (I don’t see the whole thing by one group). Of course hearing original instruments and then modern might be jarring to the ear. (And I couldn’t find a few movements.) But it’s Mozart! And it’s the Serenade. What a wonderful work!

1: Largo – Allegro molto

2: Menuetto

3: Adagio

5: Romance: Adagio

7: Rondo, Allegro Molto
