An authoritative Urtext edition of the Piano Sonata C major K. 330 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Edited by Ernst Herttrich with fingering by Hans-Martin Theopold. FIRST MOVEMENT This Sonata is in many respects a total contrast to the preceding work, with no trace of melancholy except for the sadness expressed in the middle section of the Andante. The first movement is exuberantly gay. SECOND MOVEMENT It is followed by an intimate Andante cantabile movement with a beautifully expressive minor episode and some fine contrapuntal part-writing in the episodeŒÍs A flat section. The numerous phrase marks and the careful dynamic indications testify toMozartŒÍs own fondness of his Sonata. By the way, the last four measures of this middle movement are not in the autograph Œ_ Mozart added them wh en the Sonata was given to the engraver. What a blissful afterthought! THIRD MOVEMENT This Andante is followed by a cheerful, sturdy final movement in sonata form marked Allegretto. Its development starts with a new folk-like theme under which one could easily put the joking text from a Viennese folksong: ŒñUnsre Katz hat Junge kriegtŒƒŒî.
