About this artwork
Eine Klein Nachtmusik is probably the best-known work of Mozart and one of the most representative symbols of the Classical period.
Normally the serenades were the result of orders, but this escapes the rule, it was the feelings of love, gratitude and pain that created it. It was completed and presented in Vienna, on August 10, 1787, while composing the second act of Don Giovanni.
The fact is that this is the first work composed after the death of his mentor, confidant and the most influential person in his life, his father, Leopold Mozart, who died in May of that year.
One would expect the composition of a great funeral Mass, a Requiem, but like the work, the pain was internalized, guarded, made personal and the homage arises in an absolutely visionary and genial way, through the simplicity of this Little Serenade that brings us to joy of a happy childhood, full of affection, tenderness and security.
Its publication only occurred after the death of Mozart, by his wife, in 1827.
