Gran Partita

In the 18th century, serenades were instrumental pieces divided into a large number of movements. They were played for social entertainment and were usually dedicated to someone. We don’t know to whom Mozart dedicated Serenade No. 10 at the beginning of the 1780s, when he moved to Vienna. Perhaps to Emperor Joseph II. Perhaps to Constanze, whom he married around this time. What is certain is that it would later be known by the name Gran Partita, or it wouldn’t have been the longest instrumental work in his entire catalog.
