    Some rare Mozart music

    Hi everyone

    I'm slowly writing my own music and sometimes I get frustrated. To help me relax and gain perspective I decided to take one of my Mozart scores and render one of his unusual baroque style pieces (sounds a lot like he studied some Bach ). This particular section is the Ouverture of an incomplete Suite for harpsichord KV399(or 385i depending). I entered the notes into Overture4 and used the GPO harpsichord. Of course there are no dynamics, but I tried to use different phrasing and articulations to make it sound more natural. I will render the Allemande and Courante next.

    I hope you can just sit back, relax and enjoy this Mozart.

    You can download the mp3 HERE.
    Kind Regards

    Who is this Mozart fellow you're talking about?

    I would give my left one to be able to write like that. You did a super job on this work of which I am not familiar. It does sound more like Herr Bach than it does Herr Mozart.

    Thanks for your fine rendering.

    Very well done LouisD. I know this work as one of Mozarts organpieces and I like it very much like that but I never heard it played on harpsichord. It is really surprising. Great!

    Regards,

    I vaguely remember playing this ages ago as an organ
    arrangement; and was unaware of its origins, Louis.
    Very nice job with it!

    Mozart was a grand master of counterpoint, though
    he isn't thought of so often in that light -- wonderful
    to hear more of it, thanks!

    My best,

    I don't think I've ever heard this piece...

    Wow, this is quite a different style for the master... in the first half, there aren't enough notes! It does indeed sound like he had been studying some Bach... Thanks for sharing. I don't think I would ever have guessed that this was Mozart's work...

    Thanks very much for this Louis - I dont know this piece. He's miraculous. The only bit that leapt out to me as Mozart was near the end in the stretto bit - there's a section alot like the Domine Jesu in the Requiem. I guess he's a lot more famous for the contrapuntal sections/works of his last years.
    Thanks again!

    PS: fine performance too!

    That's a very spritely performance. I'm suprised you can do all that work "for relaxation"!

    Glad you liked it, Larry!

    I would give my left and right one to be able to write like that, but then again.........

    Gerhard and David,

    You are probably right. I can see this as an organ piece. According to the Urtext, it just mentions Suite for keyboard, so I guess it could be played on any keyboard.

    Glad you enjoyed it.
    Kind Regards

    Glad you enjoyed it, Sean. I know you are a Mozart fan, so am I. I don't think there are too many scores of his that I don't have, and even I find new, and unknown to me pieces every day......

    Keep listening (for the next 50 year or so.... )
