Classical. For 2 oboes, 2 bassoons & 2 french horns. Mozart wrote the five Divertimenti for Wind Sextet between the years 1775 and 1777 when he was living in Salzburg. The Italian title is reminiscent of simple “light” music, but the pieces' melodic ingenuity and colourful writing for winds show it to be chamber music of the highest quality. -the publisher
