Kassel, 1991. Oblong, 34 x 25 cm, 18, 12 pp. Full-color halftone of the autograph in the original loose bifolio format. Re-discovered in the vault of the Eastern Baptist Theological Seminary in the summer of 1990, this precious manuscript is now at the Mozarteum in Salzburg. Mozart originally conceived the close of the sonata-rondo finale as a 3-bar cadence following bar 300 before he opted for the longer, more striking final version. This and a number of other corrections suggest that the manuscript is a working” copy.

Mozart, Sonata Fantasy K.475/457   

A comparison of this source with the printed version of 1785 offers a whole host of discrepancies, a gold mine for students of the composer’s compositional process. Comes with CD recording featuring pianist Alfred Brendel. Handsome portfolio with green laid paper boards with pasted and embossed label.   (view other volumes from this publisher)
