Mozart's Serenade in G major, known as "Eine kleine Nachtmusik," was composed in 1787 and is one of his most renowned and frequently performed works. The exact reason for its creation remains unknown, as it was not commissioned but rather written during a time when Mozart was also working on his opera "Don Giovanni." This serenade, consisting of four movements, exemplifies Mozart's mastery of classical form and melody. Its joyful and elegant character, showcased through brilliant interplay between instruments, has made it a staple of the chamber music repertoire. The autograph manuscript, known for its balanced clarity and Mozart's beautiful handwriting, adds to the allure of this timeless masterpiece.
