3 the lesser nobility, for whom wind ensembles were not only cheaper than employing a full orchestra, but also had the advantage of being suitable for both outdoor and indoor performance. Mozart himself introduces one function of Harmoniemusik in the supper scene of Don Giovanni, where the Don is seen enjoying his supper to the accompaniment of some of the popular operatic tunes of the day played by his own wind ensemble.
During his earlier years in Salzburg, Mozart composed eight wind divertimentos, works almost certainly designed for outdoor use, and primarily intended to fall pleasingly on the ear as little more than background music.

Whatever the somewhat mysterious background to this unique work, modern listeners will surely echo those sentiments penned over years ago -- glorious, grand, excellent, and sublime are indeed just epithets.
