Harvey, Jonathan : Serenade in homage to Mozart


Jonathan Harvey’s Serenade (In Homage to Mozart) was written in 1991 to preface performances of The Magic Flute by Glyndebourne Festival Opera. Comprising two five-minute movements, and scored for 10 wind players, it ends with a loud, high chord of E-flat, the chord which begins Mozart’s opera. Papageno’s pipes are represented at the beginning of the first, and there are several other quotes hidden in the contrapuntal fabric of the second movement, too.

‘Stylish and witty… music of appropriately nimble rhythmand melodic grace and flow.’
The Sunday Times (Paul Driver), 11 August 1991
