The book is an attempt to gather in one place the important and critical information about Mozart's Serenade in B-flat, K. 361 for 13 instruments. The work is a very popular one, though, paradoxically, rarely performed due to its unusual instrumentation. Every effort was made to have the text of the book easily read, even though some of the technical issues involved have considerable complexities.
