Dissonant Mozart? That’s not a typo. In his »Musical Joke«, the classical composer permitted himself that exact thing: a joke, translated in several places into odd harmonies, bad intonation and ungallant writing. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was targeting instrumentalists he considered arrogant and incompetent as well as amateur composer colleagues – creating a piece whose humour is as infectious today as it was then. Between the two parts of the matinee, this Sextet sweetens the intermission outside the Alte Pfarr in Wolfegg. The rest of the Sunday morning will be filled by members of our Festival Orchestra with other works of the First Viennese School, as well as the romantic profundity of the Overture to »Freischütz « by Carl Maria von Weber and the avant-garde tonality of Mátyás Seiber’s Serenade for Wind Sextet.
