“Wind music of a very special nature on a large-scale; a composition by Hr. Mozart.” This was the way the “Wiener Blöttchen” announced the concert in the National Court Theatre; in which the clarinettist Anton Stadler was to hold his academy. There were twelve wind instruments supported by a doublebass; which was a very unusual combination of instruments; and the contemporary critics raved about it; “Oh; what an effect it made – glorious and grand; excellent and exquisite!” The title “Gran Partita;” which was added to the autograph in an unknown hand; also bears witness to admiration and respect. Our edition is based on the autograph which has changed hands many times and is today held in Washington. For 2 oboes; 2 clarinets (B-flat); 2 basset horns; 4 horns; 2 bassoons; and double bass.
