Gran partita, K. 361 : a facsimile of the holograph in the Whittall Foundation Collection by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( )

2 editions published in 1976 and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Serenade K 361 (370a) has long been known by its more famous nickname, Gran Partita. This was not Mozart's invention: his manuscript for the piece originally had no heading, but some unknown hand scribbled the nickname on it, and it has stuck. It means, essentially, "big wind symphony," which is not inaccurate: the Gran Partita uses an unusually large ensemble (13 players) for the era, as well as a seven-movement form that is larger than either a four-movement symphony or the more conventional six-movement serenade or divertimento that formed the core of the wind repertoire at the time. In addition to the usual harmonie ensemble of two oboes, two clarinets, two horns, and two bassoons, the Gran Partita adds two more horns, a pair of basset horns, and a string bass

2 editions published in 2006 in Multiple languages and English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Moldenhauer Archives at the Library of Congress contain approximately 3,500 items documenting the history of Western music from the medieval period through the modern era and is the richest composite gift of musical documents ever received by the Library. Before his death, Hans Moldenhauer (1906-1987) established a directive and provided funds for the Library of Congress to publish The Rosaleen Moldenhauer Memorial: Music History from Primary Sources: a Guide to the Moldenhauer Archives (2000). The book features a series of essays by musicologists discussing individual items from the Archives and contains a comprehensive inventory of the Moldenhauer Archives that are held in ten institutions worldwide. This online presentation includes representative examples of more than 130 items from the Archives including many complete works and, as a special presentation, an electronic version of the book's text, which is intended to replace the printed edition. In addition, the book's inventory of the Archives appears as a finding aid."
