K. 320, Posthorn Serenade for Orchestra No. 9 in D major

The Serenade for Orchestra No. 9 in D major K. 320, Posthorn, was written by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in Salzburg, in 1779. The manuscript is dated 3 August 1779 and was intended for the university "finalmusik" ceremony that year. The Concertante and Rondeau movements feature prominent concertante sections for flute and oboe. The first trio of the second minuet features a solo flautino (or piccolo) played over strings. The second trio of the second minuet features a solo for the post horn. This solo gives the serenade its nickname.
