This edition brings together major works from four substantial repertories of orchestral serenades emanating from musical centers in South Germany and Austria. Part 1 presents works by Munich composers Wolfgang Kirmayr (d. 1795), Augustin Holler (1744–1814), and Joseph Willibald Michl (1745–1816). Part 2 contains serenades by Salzburg composer Joseph Hafeneder (1746–84), Thurn und Taxis (Regensburg) composer Franz Xaver Pokorny (1729–94), and Oettingen-Wallerstein (Swabia) kapellmeister Antonio Rosetti (ca. 1750–92). Each of these works is of a high musical quality and represents distinctive features of its particular repertory, illuminating in different ways how composers in these four musical centers responded to the requirements of writing a serenade. All works contain some degree of concertante orchestration, including a two-movement concerto cycle for solo violin in Hafeneder's serenade. The stylistic breadth ranges from the chamber-music intimacy and galant idiom of Kirmayr to the strongly symphonic style of Pokorny, and the more fully mature classicism of Rosetti.
