Four Instruments,
One Vision

By rediscovering forgotten repertoire, encouraging composers to write new pieces, connecting theatre, literature and music through cooperations with actors - the POQ strives to define new avenues within the classical music scene.

    Downsizing operas was customary during Mozart’s time. The so called “Harmoniemusik” (an arrangement of operas or famous arias for a smaller group of musicians), allowed the aristocratic households to entertain their guests at banquets, hunting parties and other court activities with the latest operas and arias.

    For the most part, the composers themselves did not make the arrangements, that was a task reserved for other contemporaries, who were specialized in “Harmoniemusik”.

    Zu Mozarts Zeiten gab es die weit verbreitete Gattung der sogenannten Harmoniemusik. Unter ihr verstand man - sowohl in Länge als auch in Besetzung- reduzierte Versionen zeitgenössischer Opern, die oft bereits kurz nach der Premiere der originalen Oper erschienen.

    Diese Arrangements ermöglichten es Adelshäusern geladene Gesellschaften bei Banketten, Jagdpartys und sonstige Hofaktivitäten mit den aktuellen neuen Opern und Arien zu unterhalten.
