Brass, Reeds, and Percussion (April 22, 2017)

In the movie Amadeus, Antonio Salieri is depicted as the bitter rival of Mozart with the hint that he may have had Mozart poisoned. In truth, they were probably respectful rivals. And both wrote music for the wind band. Yes, that’s right. I said they both wrote music for the wind band—or harmoniemusik as it was called at the time. So today’s edition of Brass, Reeds, and Percussion will feature the music of the lesser known composer Salieri. By the way, the most typical instrumentation of the harmoniemusik was two oboes, two clarinets, two horns, and two bassoons, with a string bass often being added to strength the bass line. We’ll open today’s edition with Salieri’s “Parade March for Harmoniemusik in C Major.” In this performance, a double bassoon is substituted for the string bass.
