Among the most beloved periods in the history of music, Viennese Classicism undoubtedly stands out: the style that flourished in the then Habsburg capital in the second half of the 18th century and which reached peaks of unusual splendor with the unrivaled masterpieces of Mozart and Haydn. Many of their most famous works have long since entered the ears even of those who do not usually frequent concert halls, clear evidence of the eternal youth of their style and the universality of their language. Sunday 3 July at 5.30 pm at the church of Santa Maria Maggiore, in via Santa Maria, 7 in Avigliana, thanks to the collaboration of the Centro Cultural Vita e Pace, the wind octet of the Arsnova Orchestra will recall the glories of this happy period with two attractive serenades by Mozart and Beethoven. The term “serenade” was generally used to describe a composition for wind ensemble, which was often performed outdoors on warm summer evenings to the delight of those strolling through the streets of Vienna. From a structural point of view, these works have numerous similarities with the symphonies (starting from the subdivision into four movements, with an Andante and a Minuet enclosed between two lively and lively tempos), but the mellow timbre of the wind instruments and a marked melodiousness contribute to give these works a pleasant intimate atmosphere, which, more than two and a half centuries after their first performance, continues to conquer the public.
