Eine kleine Nachtmusik - 'A Little Night-music' (as Mozart himself named this Serenade) - is a beguiling title for a piece of music, and one that even a publisher could not have improved upon. The Serenade, scored for first and second violins, violas, cellos and double basses, begins with a lively Allegro, introduced by an opening fanfare in unison, and with a second subject formed out of some lovely phrases, one of which comes into the brief "development" section. Symphony No. 25 in G minor, K. 183 - Up to the middle of 1773 (his eighteenth year) Mozart had modelled the majority of his symphonies on the three-movement Italian operati sinfonia. During a stay in Vienna in 1773 he was able to hear some of the latest Viennese symphonies, and when he returned to home he produced three symphonies (No. 25 in G minor, No. 28 in C and No. 29 in A) that, besides being more mature in musical content than any of their predecessors, are unequivocally cast in the weightier, four-movement form adopted by Haydn and his Viennese contemporaries. The G minor Symphony is the most striking of the three, not least because of its remarkable affinity with Mozart's only other minor-key symphony - the great G minor of 1788 (No. 40). Handel s Concerti Grossi Op.6 are 12 concerti grossi for a concertino trio of two violins and violoncello and a ripieno four-part string orchestra with harpsichord continuo. Handel incorporated in the movements the full range of his compositional styles, including trio sonatas, operatic arias, French overtures, Italian sinfonias, airs, fugues, themes and variations and a variety of dances.
