"Furtwängler, le must, Brüggen, l'autre must"
Le Monde de la Musique.
Menuetto from the historic recording with Members of the 18th Century Orchestra (1988).
The Stadler Trio was formed a while before, and its members play in this project. Notice the first Trio of the Menuet for 2 Clarinets and 2 Basset Horns. During the Gran Partita tours the Stadler Trio always played one piece, also by Mozart, in the first part of the concerts. From the "25 pieces" KV 439b, Frans Bruggen often chose Larghetto, 17. Frans Brüggen, one of the best and most influential conductors ever, conducted this Menuetto understanding like nobody else the two great features of the piece: the dance and the sonata-form structure.
