6 Viennese Sonatinas
By Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart / ed. Willard A. Palmer
Originally composed for three wind instruments, these popular piano transcriptions were first published in the early 1800s. Easier than Mozart's piano sonatas, they remain favorite teaching pieces and are beautiful examples of the composer's mature classical style. Unlike other editions, this carefully edited volume restores Mozart's articulation markings and the original pairing of several menuet and trio movements that were previously mismatched. A discussion of Mozart's ornamentation and articulation is also included.
