Wolfgang Amadeus
Mozart

1756 - 1791

Complete works

Sonatas

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart  was a prolific composer and wrote in many genres.
Perhaps his best-admired work is in opera, the piano concerto and sonata, the symphony, and in the string quartet and string quintet.
Mozart also wrote much work for solo piano, other forms of chamber music, masses and other religious music, and numerous dances, divertimentos, and other forms of light entertainment.


How Mozart's compositions are listed. The indication "K." or "KV" refers to Köchel Verzeichnis (Köchel catalogue), i.e. the (more or less) chronological (i.e. by composition date) catalogue of Mozart's works by Ludwig von Köchel. This catalog has been amended several times, leading to ambiguity over some KV numbers.
The compositions of Mozart listed below are grouped thematically, i.e. by type of composition. Not all thematic groups of Mozart's works have a separate numbering that is generally accepted: Köchel only numbers symphonies (1 to 41), piano concertos (1 to 27, leaving out some early transcriptions by Mozart) and a few other groups. On the other hand, for most chamber music and vocal music there is no such numbering (or at least no generally accepted one).
Only relatively few of Mozart's compositions have opus numbers, as not so many of his compositions were published during his lifetime, so numbering by opus number proves quite impractical for Mozart compositions.

String Quintets (Cd No.1)



Piano music
Mozart's earliest composition attempts begin with piano sonatas and other piano pieces, as this is the instrument on which his musical education took place. Almost everything that he wrote for piano was intended to be played by himself (or by his sister, also a proficient piano player). Examples of his earliest works are those found in Nannerl's Music Book. Between 1782 and 1786 he wrote 20 works for piano solo (including sonatas, variations, fantasias, suites, fugues, rondo) and works for piano four hands and two pianos.

Chamber music
Violin music

He also wrote for piano and violin. Note the order of the two instruments: for the most part, these are keyboard-centric sonatas where the violin plays a more accompanying role. In later years, the role of the violin grew to not just a support to the other solo instrument, but to build a dialogue with it.

The 'Violin Sonatas', KV 10–15, are unique in that they include an ad lib. cello part along with the score for violin and keyboard. The Neue Mozart-Ausgabe (1966) therefore includes them along with the other keyboard trios, although the Köchel catalogue (K6, 1964) lists them as normal violin sonatas.

String quartets
String Quartet No. 1 in G major, "Lodi", K. 80/73f (1770)
Milanese Quartets, K. 155–160 (1772–1773)
This cycle, in three movements, is interesting as far as these works can be considered precursors of the later—more complete—string quartets.
String Quartet No. 2 in D major, K. 155/134a (1772)
String Quartet No. 3 in G major, K. 156/134b (1772)

String Quartet No. 5 in F major, K. 158 (1772–73)
String Quartet No. 6 in B-flat major, K. 159 (1773)
String Quartet No. 7 in E-flat major, K. 160/159a (1773)
Viennese Quartets, K. 168–173 (1773)
Much more stylistically developed. In Vienna Mozart is believed to have heard the op. 17 and op. 20 quartets of Joseph Haydn, and had received from them a deep impression.
String Quartet No. 8 in F major, K. 168 (1773)
String Quartet No. 9 in A major, K. 169 (1773)
String Quartet No. 10 in C major, K. 170 (1773)

Haydn Quartets, K. 387, 421, 428, 458, 464, 465, Op. 10 (1782–1785)
Mozart returned to the quartet in the early 1780s after he had moved to Vienna, met Haydn in person, and developed a friendship with the older composer. Haydn had just published his set of six quartets, Op. 33, which are thought to have been a stimulus to Mozart in returning to the genre. These quartets are often regarded as among the pinnacles of the genre.
String Quartet No. 14 in G major, "Spring", K. 387 (1782)
String Quartet No. 15 in D minor, K. 421/417b (1783)
String Quartet No. 16 in E-flat major, K. 428/421b (1783)

String Quartet No. 19 in C major, "Dissonance", K. 465 (1785)
String Quartet No. 20 in D major, "Hoffmeister", K. 499 (1786)
This work was published by (dedicated to?) Franz Anton Hoffmeister, as well as the Prussian Quartets.
Prussian Quartets, K. 575, 589, 590, Op. 18 (1789–1790)
Mozart's last three quartets, dedicated to the King of Prussia, Friedrich Wilhelm II, are noted for the cantabile character of the parts for cello (the instrument played by the king himself), the sweetness of sounds and the equilibrium among the different instruments.
String Quartet No. 21 in D major, K. 575 (1789)
String Quartet No. 22 in B-flat major, K. 589 (1790)
String Quartet No. 23 in F major, K. 590 (1790)
Other
String Quartet in E minor, K. 417d (1789; fragment)

The string quintets (K. 174, 406, 515, 516, 593, 614), for two violins, two violas and cello. Charles Rosen wrote that "by general consent, Mozart's greatest achievement in chamber music is the group of string quintets with two violas."

String Quintet No. 1 in B-flat major, K. 174 (1773)
