Mozart and MOB Music

3.7.2021 klo 13:00 - 14:00

HK Gruber, conductor
Håkan Hardenberger, trumpet 

Bernd Richard Deutsch: String Quartet No. 2
Arrangements from W.A. Mozart’s operas for wind octet
HK Gruber: Three MOB Pieces for trumpet and orchestra  

The second string quartet (2012) by Bernd Richard Deutsch treats the strings as percussion instruments caught up in a maelstrom. “Strange animals float chaotically between heaven and earthbetween gravity and freedom, in the power of bizarreunharnessed force fields.” While the upper classes got to hear Mozart’s operas in the 1780s, the common man (and womanhad to make do with arrangements for wind ensemble. This Harmoniemusik, as it was knownwas, in the Classical era, the equivalent of a modern-day phone-in request programme and placed popular arias and overtures within reach of the mob. HK Gruber’s MOB pieces have nothing to do with this, for MOB refers to the ensemble he formed in the 1960s, giving “enjoyment and invention” as its primary raisons d’être.
