Features
String Quartet No. 14 in G Major; KV. 387 Spring by : Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart : William Purvis


The first question is why transcribe a work such as Mozart's String Quartet KV 387; which is so perfectly rendered in the original; for another instrumental ensemble? The only answer for wind players is to have the opportunity to play and learn from this great work directly. Mozart loved the wind instruments; but wrote for them rather differently than for the strings. Of course; it is much easier for the strings to produce a seamless; blended sound. The winds; which all produce sound differently; will have to work hard for this; particularly in the first and third movements of KV387. In the second movement; with its strange sudden dynamic changes highlighting individual voices; and in the fourth movement; with its brilliant contrapuntal writing (a fourth movement of the Jupiter Symphony in miniature); the winds can contribute more color and individuality.
