Class Notes: Expression in Music - Mozart's "Gran Partita"Classical MPR

July 01, 2019

In the early 1780s, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart composed a serenade later nicknamed "Gran Partita." The serenade's sublime third movement, its Adagio, is one of the most beautiful and poignant in all classical music.

The movement also gives each of us a chance to experience for ourselves how music can move us, and how it evokes — and also allows us to express — feelings and ideas if we are attuned to what it has to offer.
