Serenade: Music To Calm The Night Down

I love Britten's Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings so much that I have to do another playlist for it. So I did a playlist of serenades.

It opens with Mozart's signature tune: Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, little night music, and followed by an early Baroque serenade from Alessandro Scarlatti, Serenade for Violin, Viola and Cello by Beethoven, Serenades for Strings by Dvořák, Elgar, Tchaikovsky, and Suk respectively, Stravinsky's Serenade for Piano in A, Vaughan Williams' Serenade to Music, Bernstein conducts his own Serenade for Solo Violin, Strings, Harp and Percussion (after Plato's "Symposium"), Rodrigo's Concerto Serenade for Harp and Orchestra,  Arnold's Serenade for guitar and strings, a Scott Joplin piano rag called A Mexican Serenade, Haydn's serenade quartet - actually written by Roman Hoffstetter, and many others. I also put in some serenade movements from orchestral and chamber works, such as the serenade movement in Shostakovitch's last string quartet, No. 15

Here's the Spotify playlist: Serenade (181 tracks, 15.9 hours). It may grow as I will add in more stuff, and please suggest more recordings that you would like to be put in this playlist by commenting on this thread.

At the end of the playlist it's Mozart's Gran Partita, let's hear what Salieri had to say about this divine music.
