Description: It is said that in a recital given on 23 March 1783 with the celebrated composer Christoph Willibald Gluck most likely in attendance, Mozart improvised variations on the song “Unser dummer Pöbel meint” from Gluck's Singspiel Die Pilgrime von Mekka. He later put them to paper and had them printed three years later. It is quite possibly Christoph Willibald Gluck's celebrity that was responsible for K.455 being one of Mozart's musically most demanding variation cycles.

Description: Only very few piano works have become as popular as this theme with twelve variations. It already caught on soon after Mozart's death, as witnessed by the numerous handwritten copies and prints. Although nothing is known with any certainty regarding its genesis, we can now conclusively date “Ah, vous dirai-je Maman” to 1781. At that time Mozart wanted to make his way as a prominent piano teacher in Vienna. His variations still prove to be excellent teaching material. Our edition has been completely revised and also offers an extremely informative preface by the Mozart specialist Ulrich Konrad. A facsimile of Mozart's manuscript is also published by Henle (HN 3213).

Description: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's (1756-1791) Flute Concerto in G was written by the composer in 1778. The concerto remains widely studied and performed on the flute, making it one of the most important concerti in the instrument's repertoire. Paul Taffanel and Philippe Gaubert's composed cadenzas for the work are essential to all performers of the concerto. Concerto in G is in three movements; 1. Allegro maestoso, 2. Adagio ma non troppo, and 3. Rondo: Tempo di Menuetto. The first and last movements are in the tonic key, whilst the second movement is in the subdominant key of D major. All three movements contain a cadenza which initially would have been left for the performer to improvise. However, cadenzas have since been written, including those of Taffanel and Gaubert. Both were prominent flautists of their time and their understanding of the flute concerto repertoire is second to none, making their cadenzas well-informed and essential to performers of the concerto.
Description: These delightful intermediate level piano duet arrangements, intended for teaching purposes, were first published in 1793, just two years after the premiere of one of the world's favorite operas. Includes a preface in English.
Description: In 1783-85, Mozart wrote his Five Divertimenti for two bassett-horns and bassoon (K. 439b), which were first published in 1803. At about the same time a version for piano duet was made which rearranged the movements of the Five Divertimenti as Six Viennese Sonatinas. This new edition is based on the piano version of 1803, but also takes into account the original wind divertimenti and attempts to combine the original phrasing and part-writing with an idiomatic pianistic style.
Description: From the late 1760s onwards Mozart repeatedly composed series of dance movements for orchestra. Demand for this occasional music, which really was intended for dancing, increased in the winter months, when the nobility and middle classes frequented balls during the carnival season. Mozart put together his own piano reduction of some of these dance series, as is also the case with the eight Minuets. Only this wonderful autograph version for piano has survived. Our single edition was put together using the musical text from the revised complete volume “Mozart Piano Pieces” (HN 22 and 9022).

He later put them to paper and had them printed three years later. It is quite possibly Christoph Willibald GlIn April and May 1789, Mozart, along with Prince Lichnowsky, undertook a journey via Dresden and Leipzig to Berlin, where he presumably played before the Prussian King Friedrich Wilhelm II. No doubt as a friendly homage to the royal chamber music director and cellist Jean-Pierre Duport, he anticipated his meeting by writing – during the journey – nine variations on a Minuet, also by Duport. Today they belong among Mozart's most beloved variation cycles.
