Allegro (Eine Kleine Nachtmusik)
Mozart wrote Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, K 525, in 1787 for chamber music ensemble but it was not published until 1827, after his death. The German title actually means "a little serenade" and it is interesting to note that he was working on the powerful opera, Don Giovanni K.527, at the same time! Perhaps Mozart needed a bit of joy … this lighthearted selection is a perfect piece to include in your concert repertoire! It is mostly rung with malleted low bass and nicely-placed RTs which make this piece dance. Will's handbell transcription is faithful to the original work and ringers and audience alike will enjoy it immensely.
