“A piece by Mozart's son!”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - chrish@justflutes.com
This is an interesting piece, if only because it's written by Mozart's son. Franz Xaver did not inhereit his father's prodigious talent but this is pleasant enough to warrant further investigation, and it is a rare original work from the nineteenth century. It isn't a Rondo but a sonata movement, opening with a short but dramatic introduction before entering into a lyrical dialogue with the piano. Worth a look for novelty value if nothing else!

From the Publisher

Franz Xaver Wolfgang Mozart did not have an easy time of it – throughout his life his compositions were always compared to those of his father. It is only recently that he has slowly begun to come into his own. His works have their very own individual sound that already forges a link with Romanticism. The specialist Karsten Nottelmann has edited Urtext editions of all of Franz Xaver’s piano works for Henle publishers (HN 958, 959), and now he is continuing with the Rondo for Flute and Piano. Flautists greatly value this melodious work that is very suitable for teaching purposes and music at home.
