Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Part 3 of the 9-part series called "Mozart Monday"

Oops! I forgot to post this yesterday (the true Mozart Monday); I guess this week we have Mozart Tuesdays. And so soon in the series! I’m sure this is the least of the hangups I will encounter.

This is the longest piece yet by young Wolfgang, with the playthrough I listened to clocking in at 48 seconds. It’s a fun little piece, with a theme that includes a bit of dissonance that’s disarmingly charming. The second part starts with a weirdly dissonant thing as well, which surprised me when I heard it.

That being said, it’s really a one-trick pony. It’s just that theme moved up and down the scale with a little variation in the fourth through eighth bars and maybe a little minor variation later? Anyway it’s fine but I’m chomping to get to the longer better stuff.
