The 1st part of our series contains a late 19th and an early 20th century work. The Serenade for String Orchestra is one of the best known and representative compositions by Tchaikovsky, a reverent homage to Viennese Classical serenades and Mozart’s genius. Considered one of Dohnányi’s first mature works, the Serenade was composed in 1902 during a course of a concert tour bridging London and Vienna. Its first performance was given in Vienna in 1904 by members of the Fitzner Quartet.
