“The value of this Talich recording, which is vivacious and well-played but maybe not the last word in elegance or grace, is that it comes with three more divertimenti, the unnumbered so-called “Salzburg symphonies”.” MusicWeb International, 26th June 2014

The three Divertimentos for strings K136-138 (125a-c) have an unassailable place in the standard repertoire of any string orchestra. They are full of sparkling, dramatic and melancholy themes. In style they are clearly structured, but not without refinement. The dominant factor is brilliance of effect, which never descends into triviality. In short, we have here a compendium of the young Mozart’s liveliest and most enchanting string music.

This title was released for the first time in 2004.

During the 18th century it was common for noblemen to employ numbers of musicians to entertain themselves and their guests, and to add dignity and colour to occasions of Church and State. Music was frequently written to form a pleasant background to dinners and parties. Serious or complex music would clearly have been inappropriate for gatherings of this kind; it was the task of the composer to amuse the guests without overstepping his function and distracting them from the more important business of eating, drinking and making merry.

In these circumstances much music was produced which deserved no more than to be talked through; but composers of the ability of Mozart and Haydn responded with light music of a higher quality. The titles Divertimento, Cassation, Serenade and Notturno all refer to pieces of this kind. Elements of the old dances – allemande, courante, sarabande and so on – had fallen from favour, but the minuet was used a good deal and the style gallant was much in evidence.

Neville Marriner and the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields’ recording of Mozart’s most popular serenade – the ubiquitous Eine kleine Nachtmusik – made for Argo in 1970 has never been out of the catalogue, but the other works on this compilation, equally compelling, magically performed, have not, as often, seen the light of day on CD. Such is the case with the brief issue in Decca’s ‘World Of…’ series of the extended Divertimento KV 334 and the haunting Notturno for four orchestras, deploying extraordinary echo effects. These are complemented on this anthology with the Serenata Notturna, the three early Divertimenti KV 136–138, and the little-known but breezy Concertone opening the collection.

“Everywhere the orchestra offers the neatest and most stylish of playing; and this, coupled with good recording” Gramophone Magazine (Divertimento KV 334, Notturno)

“this is the most enormously enjoyable Mozart playing, obviously prepared with great care and carried out with the utmost artistry” Gramophone Magazine (Divertimenti KV 136–138, Serenata Notturna)

“The warm acoustic of St John’s … provides an aptly glowing atmosphere. A delightful disc” Gramophone Magazine (Concertone)

“This reissue … tends to sweep the board. The playing is marvellous, and Marriner’s choice of tempi is equally apt. The Argo recording, rich in texture and detail, sounds admirably fresh here. […] The sparkle of this music-making is irresistible.” Penguin Guide

Vienna Octet

Recording location: Sofiensaal, Vienna, Austria, April 1961 (KV 136, KV 334); September 1962 (KV 287); October 1963 (KV 247); October 1964 (KV 205, KV 290)

This recording forms part of a series of 10 reissues celebrating the glorious Decca recordings from the 1950s-1970s of the Wiener Oktett (Vienna Octet), made up of key principals from the Wiener Philharmoniker and the Vienna Symphony Orchestra.

Those who campaign against background music in shops, restaurants, hotel lobbies and lifts do not have history on their side. A whole corpus of marvellous music, including the delightful Mozart Divertimenti on these discs, is not intended for serious listening. Its original performances were certainly given against a hum of conversation and probably in the open air.

These glorious Wiener Oktett performances represent the Wiener Oktett’s stereo recordings of these pieces, with the ensemble led by Anton Fietz (1926-2010). (The ensemble’s earlier recordings of selected Mozart Divertimenti, led by Willi Boskovsky will be released in December 2010 under the title “Mozart from a Golden Age”.)

The recordings of the Divertimenti KV 136 and No. 15 in B flat make their first international appearance on Decca CD and the release is accompanied by extensive and probing notes on the music and the performers by renowned commentator Tully Potter.
