Diversity in Harmony: Nachtmusique

In the organizer's words:

Mozart's "Nachtmusique" in C minor KV 388 is confronted with a work of the same instrumentation by Isang Yun, the wind octet composed on Tenerife (1994).

At the center of this concert is a late work by Isang Yun, composed in Tenerife in 1994, which is juxtaposed with a work by Mozart with the same instrumentation: Mozart composed the Serenade in C minor K. 388, known as "Nachtmusique", in Vienna in 1981/82 - at a time when he was
he co-founded the Viennese classical style by integrating baroque, polyphonic compositional techniques.

Strictly speaking, Mozart's four-movement Serenade is a wind symphony. Yun's wind octet unfolds a kind of infinite melody in the interplay of rival thirds and groups of thirds. The Berlin composer Markus Bongartz composed a horn fanfare for each part of the program. This unusual concert program is rounded off by "Tell it or shout" for bassoon and double bass (2014) by Charlotte Seither.
